Welcome to the Science Grants Portal

Register to apply for a Human Cell Atlas grant

At the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, we believe it is possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases in our children’s lifetime. One of the first projects we are working on to achieve that goal is the Human Cell Atlas.

The Human Cell Atlas is an international effort to map and characterize every cell in the human body as a new resource to study health and disease. This endeavor will generate molecular and imaging data across a range of modalities and spatial scales, requiring new probabilistic and integrative approaches for analysis and interpretation, systematic comparison of methods on benchmark datasets, and mechanisms for disseminating these methods to a wide community.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for one year projects to develop computational tools, algorithms, visualizations, and benchmark datasets in support of the Human Cell Atlas. Participants will collaborate with each other and with Chan Zuckerberg Initiative scientists and engineers to accelerate progress, facilitate communication, and maximize open dissemination of the resulting tools.
