FOUNDING PARTNERS

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people's health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life.

Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Mark Suzman and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett. It provides GHDDI with generous initiation and research funding as well as assistance on institutional development.

STRATEGIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL PARTNER

California Institute for Biomedical Research (Calibr)

Calibr is an independent not-for-profit institute established in 2012 focusing on translational medicine. It has demonstrated an effective early drug development model through collaborations with researchers across the world while enabling commercial partnerships to bring new candidate therapeutics to the public. Value created from these activities is reinvested in preclinical and clinical research at the institute to create a self-sustaining, ‘evergreen’ model for not-for-profit biomedical research.

Calibr has demonstrated a model of early drug discovery for GHDDI. The Institute also led the effort of acquiring the ReFRAME compound library and provided advice on project portfolios. We have initiated multiple collaboration projects with Calibr.
