The first major science effort the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is taking on is the Human Cell Atlas

In some good news for science and the future, I'm excited to share that the first major science effort the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is taking on is the Human Cell Atlas.

The Human Cell Atlas is an effort to create a reference map of all human cells and their properties, similar to the periodic table in chemistry. There are more than 10,000 different types of cells in the human body. We're partnering to build an open source data platform that will accelerate this initiative. Once the atlas is complete, it will be a huge resource for helping scientists understand basic biology and ultimately cure all diseases in our children's lifetimes.

Teams from around the world are working together on this project. We're teaming up with the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and UC Santa Cruz to generate an incredible amount of diverse knowledge and standardize it all to be accessible to everyone in the scientific community.

This kind of global collaboration between scientists and engineers is an important part of advancing scientific discovery. We're excited to contribute to this effort through both engineering and funding, and I look forward to seeing its progress in the coming years.

I continue to believe that we can be the generation that ends disease, ends poverty, and stops climate change. Let's make sure we each use our time here to make the greatest positive impact we can.
