Welcome to the LRC! LRC is part incubator, part research institute, and part non-profit, conceptualized to bring the power of rigorous quantitative thinking to solve problems in scientific, commercial and social spheres. Researchers at the LRC will undertake high-risk, high-reward work that has the capacity to produce meaningful change.


The LRC was launched on September 25, 2019, as a division of Global Viral. Noting the growth and expansion opportunities under the LRC banner, Global Viral transitioned into the LRC on January 1, 2020.
