Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center

We seek to understand the programs of life across biological scales — from cells, to tissues, to organisms — by conducting research at the interface of machine learning and biology.

About the Center


Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center is enabling a new field of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the data and life sciences, aimed at improving human health. Our researchers and partners work together to make the biological questions of our time key drivers for foundational advances in machine learning — and vice versa.
