Among the initiative's projects are investments in the Human Cell Atlas, which aims to map out every single cell in the human body, and the Biohub, which joins researchers from the three major academic research institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area. Zuckerberg shows up regularly, particularly for scientific briefings, but Chan runs it day to day. Board meetings at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub , a research center backed by Facebook FB CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg, his wife Priscilla Chan and LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, always kick off in the same way.
