The rich humanitarian Paul Allen has given away $100 million in cold hard cash for research purposes.

The billionaire “lover of humanity”, Paul Allen has made a pledge to hand over $100 million for research purposes. Over the next decade or so, he will be funding experiments that have to do with the leading edge biosciences.

This giant step the man has taken will prove to be a crucial stimulant for the future. In the beginning, several grants will go to Stanford and Tufts universities. Then research sites will be set up and also individual scientists will get a dose of financial help for their endeavors.  

The scientists who are being funded will be applying the latest knowledge to tissue regrowth, antibiotic research, genetic engineering and neurochemistry.

Paul Allen spoke of how he was cognizant of the fact that biology was at a turning point in its history as a science. The necessary technology developed from the funding will go a long way in allowing the field to make quantitative leaps.

Novel methods of handling genetic material, advanced microscopes which could peer into a cell’s basic components and complex computers would be the order of the day. 

The grant he has made will radically change the scenario for biology. For one thing, a modicum of cross-pollination will occur. This means that the scientists will hook up with professionals from other areas of know-how thereby increasing the biological heritage and cornucopia of information.

Biologists will learn to be creative and think outside the box. Paul Allen as everybody knows is a co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates’ brainchild firm. He is worth a solid $17.7 billion.

Yet the man is not the least bit selfish and is in fact quite a humanitarian and philanthropist. It is not just the large sums of money he has donated to worthy causes that is a notable fact but the progress he is spearheading via his financial and personal input.  

Paul is genuinely interested in life. His biophilic approach has always sought to benefit humanity and the connected ecosystem via a positive forward-looking approach.

He is an entrepreneur and a hero of economic life. This daring gentleman loves taking risks and is a genuine believer in modernism and the progressive drive to excel oneself.

The research that will take place on his financial behest will go on to build a brand new world where everything will dovetail in a smooth fashion.

It is the unknown and untried that he wants to explore in his quest for a better tomorrow. Allen has funded myriad projects and his every day is living proof of the human drive to curiously find new methods of doing stuff.
