On Tuesday, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced that it intends to "observe, measure, and analyze any biological process throughout the human body - across spatial scales and in real-time." To achieve its goal of curing and preventing biological diseases, the organization will be donating $3.4 billion towards developing a variety of new institutions, as well as new research and technologies. The venture will span over 10 years.

A spokesperson for CZI, Jeff MacGregor, said that the organization will be giving $500 million over the next 15 years to develop a new artificial intelligence-focussed institution at Harvard University. This new institution will be named after Zuckerberg's mother, Karen Kempner Zuckerberg.

Additionally, the spokesperson said that anywhere between $600 and $900 million will be used to build a new biomedical imaging institute at CZI and that $1 billion will be given to the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Network that aims at bringing together scientific institutions to tackle "grand scientific challenges."
