Summary:

"The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative announced plans Wednesday to support bioRxiv, a website where researchers can share results before the drawn-out process of peer review.

Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and his physician wife Priscilla Chan launched the initiative in 2015. Last year, they pledged $3 billion toward curing cancer and other conditions. Neuroscientist Cori Bargmann leads the initiative’s science strategy. Wednesday’s announcement did not disclose the amount of funding for bioRxiv, which is run out of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York."
