Supports the Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life
The origin of life is one of the great unsolved scientific problems of our age. Understanding the origins of life involves finding answers to questions concerning the astrophysical and planetary context of the origins of life, the development of prebiotic chemistry, the assembly of the first cells, the advent of Darwinian evolution, and the earliest signs of life on the young Earth.
