“Our eight institutes are sponsoring this series because we believe deeply that global communication and cooperation in science is more important than ever for the world's future. We see a strong need for international cooperation to tackle disease, climate change, preservation of biodiversity, and much more.

We hope that Life Science Across the Globe will remind us all that knowledge generated through science is a global public good — that the process of science and the evidence-based reasoning of science is a type of universal language and that science nurtures friendships of people throughout the world.”

— Ron Vale, executive director of HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus
