$3 Billion to Fight Diseases

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan will invest at least $3 billion toward an ambitious plan to prevent, cure or manage all diseases by the end of the century, they announced yesterday.
 
The first project will be an independent, interdisciplinary research center in San Francisco, formed in partnership with Stanford, the University of California-Berkeley, and the University of California-San Francisco with initial funding of $600 million over 10 years.
 
“We want to dramatically improve every life in Max’s generation and make sure we don’t miss a single soul … We’ll be investing in basic science research with the goal of curing disease,” Chan said, referring to their daughter, Maxima.
