• “The traditional approach of focusing on single isolated components just won’t work in the complex systems that are human beings. Systems biology is the future of research and will provide the tools needed to understand complex diseases like cancer, heart disease, obesity, etc., that are plaguing our society.”

    -Chris Plaisier, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, Baliga Lab, ISB
  • “The promise of systems biology is what the 100K Wellness Project and many others at ISB are all about. My participation has given me new insights into my own health, and will contribute data to an emerging revolution in medicine where we move beyond treating disease. This is exciting science.”

    – Dave Sabey, ISB Chairman of the Board
  • “…In order to really see the culprits (of disease), we have to zoom in, into blood, into cells, into microbiology so complex we ordinary mortals can’t grasp it. But computers can and the creative and brilliant minds at ISB can. They can take great complexity and sort it into sense.”

    – Liesl Wilke, Wilke Lyme Disease Project at ISB

Where Your Generosity Leads Us

As an independent nonprofit research institution, ISB relies on the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation donors to maintain the highest quality of basic science research. With your gift, you can ensure that promising new ideas continue to be pursued as they emerge – research that is not funded by grants or eligible for public funding.

You can also enable our researchers to staff their laboratories with the best and brightest minds, and purchase or invent the technology necessary to advance their work.


Our monthly newsletter is the best way to keep up with ISB’s research projects and milestones.
