The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of £88,922 ($115,652 at time of conversion) to the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI), to support the hiring of Dr. Piers Millett to work on biosecurity and pandemic preparedness. Conceptually, we consider this part of a larger grant to FHI, which was made later for logistical reasons. We laid out the case for this grant in our writeup of the larger grant.
