Today, researchers are on the brink of dramatically expanding our understanding of the human body and illness — the very science behind medicine. Interdisciplinary teams of physicians, experimental biologists, computational scientists and engineers are progressing at an entirely new rate. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative backs these leaders and builds cutting-edge tools and technologies to scale their efforts and empower the entire scientific community. We foster collaboration between scientists and engineers and are working to grow a movement to support basic scientific research. We want to help provide every student, and every teacher, the opportunity to excel, and that means developing systems that meet students where they are and take them where they want to go, adapting to their academic interests and supporting their physical, social and emotional development along the way. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is already helping to build and deploy such personalized models and tools, empowering communities to give each child the education they deserve. We focus on developing breakthrough products and practices that address the needs of each student, bringing together the best teachers, researchers, advocates and engineers to tackle pressing problems and growing a movement to support the development and broad adoption of powerful personalized learning solutions.
