A Strong Foundation

Carnegie Science is headquartered on Broad Branch Road in Washington, D.C., with three research divisions on both coasts of the United States and at our Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. We are an endowed, independent, nonprofit organization under the leadership of President Eric D. Isaacs. Each of the divisions has its own scientific Director, who manages day-to-day operations.

A board of trustees, consisting of leaders in business, the sciences, education, and public service, oversees Carnegie’s operations. A committee thought-leaders, the Carnegie Scientific Advisory Committee is charged with assessing Carnegie’s current research programs within the broader scientific landscape, evaluating opportunities for new research directions, and generally advising the institution on implementation of internal programs such as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts.
