Center for Contemporary Sciences

The Center for Contemporary Sciences (CCS) is a scientific organization and bridge builder, advocating for and facilitating a paradigm shift toward biomedical research methods that are based on human biology.

There is an urgent need for more predictive and biologically relevant scientific tools to understand human diseases and develop treatments and cures more efficiently. CCS is accelerating a comprehensive shift across the biomedical research fields by increasing knowledge about these tools, increasing funding toward them, and improving their adoption. By catalyzing the development and use of more effective human-specific testing methods, CCS will help replace the use of animals in research and testing and revolutionize medical science.
