Institute for Systems Biology
The Institute for Systems Biology is a nonprofit biomedical research organization based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2000 by systems biologist Leroy Hood, immunologist Alan Aderem, and protein chemist Ruedi Aebersold. ISB was established on the belief that the conventional models for exploring and funding breakthrough science have not caught up with the real potential of what is possible today. ISB serves as the ultimate environment where scientific collaboration stretches across disciplines, where our researchers have the intellectual freedom to challenge the status quo, and where grand visions for breakthroughs in human health inspire a collective drive to achieve the seemingly impossible. Our core values ensure that we always keep our focus on the big ideas that eventually will have the biggest impact on human health. Since 2000, ISB has grown to about 200 staffers, which includes 9 faculty members and laboratory groups.

It takes a unique team of researchers who are trained in dozens of scientific disciplines to dive deep into the molecular machines of life so they can analyze intricate levels of details in order to understand what causes our bodies to function - or not function. Our scientists want to better predict, prevent, and reduce the effect of human diseases, and to understand what role the environment might play. Ultimately, we want everyone to enjoy a longer, healthier life.
