Allen Frontiers Symposium
The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group presented the Allen Frontiers Symposium, held at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. This two-day event featured pioneer researchers – our Allen Discovery Center lead scientists and Allen Distinguished Investigators – presenting their latest advances.
The symposium highlighted pioneering research topics spanning epigenetics, aging, cell lineage, microbial evolution, human brain evolution and more, and included a keynote address by Dr. Bart De Strooper, Director of the UK Dementia Research Institute and Professor at UCLondon and VIB/KULeuven.
As we continue to explore the whole landscape of science, it is vital to understand where significant mysteries of science are still unsolved. The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group invests in investigators and centers for frontier explorations that lead to new fundamental insights and produce important solutions with big impact.
