Ask Anything, Change Everything

Ask Anything, Change Everything


Do you have an idea or unanswered question that could potentially revolutionize bioscience? We want your input.

The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group encourages new ways of doing science, nurturing breakthroughs and fostering a community built on a shared passion for discovery. Our team is constantly seeking novel ideas and emerging fields where any early investment could have the power to make a difference for humankind.

Ask Anything, Change Everything is a campaign to ask our community:

What should we be measuring if only we had a way to?

For example:

  • What if we could measure the strength and fragility of our cells and tissues? Could we then better understand and prevent the hardening of arteries, the scarring of skin, the challenges of aging?
  • What if we could see the number and location of each immune cell in our bodies? Could we then better understand why some people get sick while others don't?

Send us your idea and we'll identify research teams to receive funding — up to $10 million in total funds — to help answer the top questions submitted.

All ideas must be submitted by 11:59pm PST on March 16, 2021 to be considered.
