Dr. Rajiv Shah, MD
"Altos Labs is taking on a scientific frontier that has the potential to transform human resilience to disease and illness and is doing so by creating a new platform for global scientific collaboration. I am excited about both the approach and the potential to lift up humanity."

Dr. Raj Shah is President of the Rockefeller Foundation, a global institution committed to promoting the well-being of humanity worldwide through data, science and innovation.

Under his leadership, the foundation raised and deployed more than $1 billion to respond to the COVID pandemic at home and abroad, launched a $10 billion Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet to help secure a just and green recovery, and is currently seeking to advance human opportunity even while reversing the climate crisis. Raj serves on President Biden’s Defense Policy Board and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Council on Foreign Relations.

In October 2023, he published Big Bets: How Large-Scale Change Really Happens, sharing a dynamic new model for realizing transformative change, inspired by his own work, the Foundation’s, and changemakers from around the world.
