Why work at BRI?
Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) is a world leader in human immunology. We have a bold mission: To predict, prevent, reverse and cure immune system diseases. We’re currently hiring new team members who are passionate about changing the course of immune system diseases.
At BRI, we study everything from autoimmune disease to cancer to COVID-19. And we examine the immune system as a whole — in healthy people and in people with disease — aiming to understand how these disorders start and how to rebalance the immune system back to health.
Equipped with innovative tools and robust biorepositories, our team spends every day tackling some of immunology’s biggest mysteries and working toward our vision: A healthy immune system for everyone.

At BRI, collaboration drives and inspires us. We built our organization to bring together experts from across science and technology.

Our team of about 300 – which includes some of the world’s foremost immunologists – collaborates:
- Across fundamental, translational and clinical research, using the latest lab discoveries to inform new treatments and therapies.
- With clinicians at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health to run clinical trials, collect patient samples and use clinical insights to pose and answer research questions.
- Between lab scientists and data scientists.
- With scientists from across the globe and other Seattle institutions – including the University of Washington, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, Allen Institute and Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
