Explore Our Impact
In the last 10 years we have:
Made revolutionary discoveries, based on the convergence of chemistry, physics, engineering and life sciences, for detection and treatment of cancer, infertility, common and rare neurodegenerative diseases, and imaging and manipulation of cell behavior.
Invested in new translational capabilities that are advancing 6 potential new drugs to clinical testing and 6 through preclinical development.
Incubated 23 new companies that have received more than $1.5B in external investment and are bringing CLP innovations to society.
Acquired more than 50 new instruments and created new services to accelerate transdisciplinary research.
Developed new 21st century curricula and activities to support development of next gen scientists working across disciplinary boundaries to address the big questions in biomedical research.
Raised more than $50M in new external funding to support these efforts.
Imagine what is possible in the next 10 years with additional funding and resources.
