“In bringing together three world-class research organizations in UC Berkeley, UCSF and Stanford, the Biohub represents the kind of cross-institutional collaborative environment that will be necessary for addressing the most pressing life sciences challenges of our time,” said UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks. “Each of these institutions brings its own set of perspectives, questions, ideas and expertise to this venture, and, given this unprecedented kind of exchange, I have no doubt that the Biohub will be the catalyst for major research breakthroughs.”

“This exciting new venture by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative brings together private philanthropy with some of the best minds in the world,” said Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California. “Collaboration in the name of science and the public good among the Bay Area’s three leading research universities will surely speed the development of new treatments and cures for diseases once deemed intractable.”
