Enabled by a visionary founding investment from GlaxoSmithKline, Altius is creating a new paradigm to catalyze ground-breaking biological innovation, integrate molecular and computational science and engineering, and empower fundamental technology development to radically accelerate the leap from basic to medical breakthroughs.
Altius is combining automated functional genomics, genome engineering, advanced imaging, and integrative computation to define fundamental mechanisms regulating genes and cells and connect these with human physiology, pathology, and therapeutics.
Altius collaborates with an international network of scientists and its unique environment synergizes with major publicly-funded research efforts aiming to chart the functional genomic landscapes of human health and disease.
Altius is applying cutting-edge design principles to architect an innovative physical and digital environment where experimentation, automation, computation, and data visualization seamlessly integrate to radically enable talented scientists.
Altius is pioneering a new framework for conceiving, executing and sharing rapidly-moving science by replacing traditional hierarchies and silos with a networked organization that maximizes discovery through synergy.
