Who We Are

At the Morgridge Institute, our scientists and staff believe in Fearless Science.

This means we are willing to take risks. We press against boundaries. We aim for science that we can’t currently imagine.

As an independent institute, we have the freedom to move quickly and decisively, to follow interesting and important questions wherever they may lead.

We embrace the challenge of pursuing curiosity-driven research and give people time to prove an idea. And we judge their progress on the quality of the science rather than the volume of grants attained and papers published.
