We find and support the best and brightest scientists, engineers and technologists. We foster an environment that emphasizes intellectual freedom and true collaboration. We provide the best scientific tools available – and when they don’t exist, we invent them.

CZ Biohub Mission

While our vision is to help cure, prevent or manage all disease in our children’s lifetime, our mission is to invent the future of life science research.

We come to work each day excited and energized to develop and apply the most advanced technologies, and collaborate with brilliant colleagues to go after diseases in ways that aren’t contemplated at traditional research facilities.

Our scientists, investigators and engineers will supply the scientific community with a steady stream of tools and discoveries that will break down the complexity of human disease and light new pathways towards cures.


Working collaboratively is at the heart of everything CZ Biohub is doing. It starts with bringing together—for the first time ever—three of the world’s leaders in biomedical and engineering innovation: University of California, Berkeley, University of California, San Francisco and Stanford.

And as we move forward we will reach out to colleagues at other research institutions, and in the Silicon Valley tech community, sharing tools and ideas as we build new momentum for the global fight against disease.

University Partnerships

Our three university partners provide the very backbone of CZ Biohub’s work. Our investigators come from these outstanding research institutions, and their faculty will be an integral part of our day-to-day operations here at CZ Biohub. We welcome their faculty to come join us here, and will be (gratefully!) using their on-site facilities as well, fostering our commitment to unwavering collaboration.

University of California, Berkeley

Founded in 1868 as the flagship campus of the University of California, Berkeley is an internationally renowned public institution. One of the top research universities in the country, Berkeley's researchers seek to address the biggest challenges of the day to create a better world.

University of California, San Francisco

One of the world’s leading health sciences universities, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has produced five Nobel Prize winners and 2,000 total active inventions. UCSF is the top-funded public academic institution by the National Institutes of Health.


At Stanford University, founded in 1891, researchers take on audacious problems, bring imaginative new approaches to solving them and work collaboratively to advance knowledge and make meaningful contributions to our world.
