Mark Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner

Yuri Milner and I established the Breakthrough Prize five years ago with the belief that our society should celebrate the scientists who advance our understanding of the world as much as we celebrate our actors, athletes and entrepreneurs.
Tonight, Vin Diesel and I presented the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences to Dr. Stephen Elledge. His groundbreaking work on how DNA regulates, repairs and re-codes itself is part of the path to cure all diseases. We need to support scientists like him around the world.
