Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,263,750 over five years to the University of Washington to continue to support protein design research, led by Professor David Baker of the Institute for Protein Design. Our scientific research team believes that the outcomes of the research could lead to many helpful applications to improve human health, such as facilitating the creation of improved diagnostic tools and antiviral therapies.

This follows our November 2017 support and falls within our work on scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing human health and wellbeing.
