CZI (Chan Zuckerberg Initiative)
Almost two billion dollars have been awarded since 2015. The scope includes BME research efforts, but CZI also funds advocacy, education and justice/opportunity efforts. The link above goes to the awards listed under "science." You can search by keyword, or look under "Program" to see broad topics. This database is only updated annually (that is *very* infrequent).
