We believe technology can maximize our impact as a philanthropy. We build tools with dedicated technology teams for education and science, and support our strategic partners by funding technology development. Here’s a quick snapshot of what our teams are working on:
SciTech In collaboration with scientists around the world, we’re developing new technologies that will help make it possible to cure, prevent or manage all diseases by the end of this century. One example from our single-cell biology work is a tool called Chan Zuckerberg CELL by GENE Discover, which helps scientists browse single-cell data collections, explore gene expression or download complex datasets. A companion tool called Chan Zuckerberg CELL by GENE Annotate expedites the collaborative analyses of complex single-cell datasets by experts around the world. Together, these tools are supporting international teams of experts at the leading edge of tissue biology and data science to analyze and share foundational datasets that clarify unique and fundamental features of all the cells in the human body.
Another example is our infectious disease work and the development of Chan Zuckerberg GEN EPI and Chan Zuckerberg ID. These free, open-source software tools let researchers and health workers, both locally and globally, identify and track disease-causing pathogens with the goal of stopping them before they lead to outbreaks.
EdTech We bring together educators, researchers, and product developers that enable them to better engage students and meet the learning and development needs of all students. We partner with Gradient Learning to create learning platforms and tools that help teachers differentiate learning experiences equitably and foster strong connections with their students. Our teams develop the software platform that supports the Summit Learning program and Along, the teacher-student connection builder that helps students feel seen and known.
