Sandra Liu Huang, who most recently led product management for the Q&A site Quora and also spent three years at Facebook during the company’s early days, is joining CZI to “lead the organization's product team,” she wrote in a post Thursday.

It’s not entirely clear what kinds of products CZI will be building, but the organization has said that it will focus on a few key areas, including fighting disease and improving education. In September, Zuckerberg and Chan pledged $3 billion to fighting diseases.

Liu Huang is the latest in a number of key hires for CZI. Molly Graham recently joined as VP of operations and David Plouffe joined in January as president of policy and advocacy.

I'm embarking on a new adventure! Next week I'll join the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to lead the organization's product...
