Mission of The Gordon Life Science Institute
The Gordon Life Science Institute is a newly emerging academic organization in the Age of Information and Internet.
Established on 25-November-2003, the mission of the Institute is to develop and apply new mathematical tools and physical concepts for understanding biological phenomena.
The Institute has no physical boundaries. Its members do not have to work in the same building or campus. Distributed over different countries of the world, they shall freely collaborate, exchange ideas, and share information and findings via a variety of modern communication methods. This versatile system allows the members to focus completely on science without having to cope with troubles in obtaining visas and in paying for relocation expenses, among many others.
The Gordon Life Science Institute is a non-profit organization. It is a gift to science and human beings. Its founding principle is the pursuit of excellence in science: any one who has proved his/her creativity in science can become a member regardless of his/her age, occupation, and nationality. Accordingly, the Institute has provided the ideal “home” or scientific community for scientists who were forced to retire because of age requirement, who could not get tenure because of unfavorable grant situation, and who had to leave basic research because of unsuccessful job application to a research-oriented institution. In the friendly community of the Gordon Life Science Institute, these scientists may continue to engage in their scientific creativities.
We believe science would be more truthful and wonderful if scientists do not have to earn their living on it. We also note that great scientific findings and creations in history were often made by those who were least supported or funded.
The current liaison site of Gordon Life Science Institute is 13784 Torrey Del Mar Drive, San Diego, CA 92130, USA.
