The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub has an audacious vision: to "enable doctors to cure, prevent or manage all diseases during our children’s lifetime.” This vision may sound outlandish at first. However, when one considers how far medicine has come in the past 100 years, this vision doesn’t seem so far-fetched. Co-presidents Joe DeRisi and Steve Quake will share insights into their quest to end disease, from advancing basic science and expanding humankind’s understanding of fundamental truth to building new technologies that can radically accelerate the pace of scientific discovery.
