Our

Institutes

Upward Research Labs is home to five major institutes, each representing different yet interconnected areas of focus. Investigators have the freedom to follow their research wherever it leads, and work closely with their colleagues in all institutes to deeply probe important questions in biomedicine. Above all, they champion highly interactive, creative, and innovative approaches to science as they seek prevention, treatments, and cures for major diseases.
