Fueling Discovery: The Allen Institute for Brain Science is an independent, non-pr! ofit medical research organization dedicated to performing innovative basic research on the brain and distributing its discoveries to researchers around the world. Through its efforts, the Institute aims to advance a new understanding of brain diseases and disorders, taking on projects at the leading edge of science — far-reaching projects at the intersection of biology and technology. The resulting data and tools constitute free, publicly available resources that fuel innovation and discovery for countless researchers and organizations. The Institute was launched in 2003 with a seed contribution from philanthropist Paul G. Allen. The Institute?s inaugural project, the Allen Brain Atlas, www.brain-map.org, made Time Magazine’s 2006 Top Ten List in Medicine.
