The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a project grant of $440,525 to Altruistic Technology Labs (“AltLabs”) to support its activities related to global catastrophic biological risk prevention. AltLabs, a new organization, intends to use these funds to hire initial staff and pursue various research projects related to catastrophic risk reduction, including machine-learning-based attribution of engineered DNA and broad-spectrum infectious disease diagnostics.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
