Allen Institute for Cell Science established to study the cell

Author: Sherry Ward, AltTox

Paul Allen has provided $100 million in support to launch the new Allen Institute for Cell Science in Seattle, Washington (http://www.nbcnews.com/science/science-news/billionaire-paul-allen-pledges-100-million-cell-science-institute-n263601).

The Institute will engage in projects that “study the cell as an integrated system” (http://www.alleninstitutecellscience.org/). As their first project, the Allen Cell Observatory intends to develop “novel visual, dynamic, predictive models of the cell that will accelerate cell biology and biomedical research.”
