|We are inspired to take on far-reaching, leading-edge projects that are both enormous in scale and momentous in significance. Our approach is deliberately ambitious. As scientists, we are seeking nothing less than advances in neuroscience that unlock new insights into the relationships between the brain, behavior, disease and health.|
Serving the scientific community is at the center of our mission to accelerate progress toward understanding the brain and neurological systems. Creating tools and data that advance the pursuits of thousands and thousands of scientists around the world is our contribution to revolutionary neuroscience. To this end, the Allen Institute's resources—each a groundbreaking creation—are free and publicly available online.
To tackle fundamental problems and further drive progress in brain science, in addition to its atlasing programs, the Allen Institute is pursuing three parallel and complementary research programs designed to yield new knowledge, publicly shared data, and new tools and technologies.
