Calico is a Bay Area research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan. We use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. We’re working in mostly uncharted areas rooted in biology and advanced technology. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place. Calico employees are scientists, engineers, explorers and inventors, comfortable with the knowledge that often incremental steps lead to a giant leap.
