At the center of scientific change
The CZ Biohub Network is the next step forward in biomedical research.
Our projects bring together world-renowned scientists and engineers, and provide them with the most advanced technology, to solve the world’s biggest health problems.
These problems demand a new approach, new energy, and new voices. They require a research lab where nothing is considered impossible, where bold and creative thinking are the norm, and where a collaborative culture allows teams of smart people to accomplish more than any single person can achieve alone.
Mapping Dynamic Cell Systems Across Scales
Scientists still have much to learn about how cells function. In order to understand the mechanisms of disease and develop technologies that will lead to actionable diagnostics and effective therapies, we study cell physiology across scales.
Understanding Inflammation and the Immune System
Inflammation and overactive immune cells play a key role in many diseases. CZ Biohub Chicago will focus on engineering technologies to make precise, molecular-level measurements of biological processes within human tissues, with an ultimate goal of understanding and treating the inflammatory states that underlie many diseases.
Harnessing the Immune System
CZ Biohub New York will first harness the natural capabilities of our immune cells to detect and fix abnormalities in our bodies at very early stages. It will then bioengineer immune cells to create new capabilities to detect and potentially treat diseases, including cancers such as ovarian and pancreatic cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, before they become untreatable.
