Do you want to help science progress faster? Do you want rethink the way science is funded and organized from first-principles? Are you interested in the life sciences?

New Science approaches the problem of making science work better by always probing for the highest-leverage points: whether it’s unblocking individual researchers by funding, mentorship or matchmaking with potential advisors and collaborators; creating new programs and structures that allow researchers to make as much progress on their science as possible; or doing metascience research that cuts at the very heart of the biggest issues facing academia. We plan to scale significantly over the next several years and to launch and quickly learn & iterate on a variety of programs and fellowships – starting with our summer and one-year fellowships – with the ultimate goal of building the institutions of science for the 21st century.

So far, we have been supported by the Survival and Flourishing Fund (funded by Jaan Tallinn, who co-founded Skype), Vitalik Buterin (creator of Ethereum), and other donors.
