We are academic scientists, driven by traditional values: curiosity-steered research and a long-term vision of technological inventions born from scientific pursuits. We are, however, working in an era of limited funding and we frequently encounter scarce resources for basic research. In order to pursue our scientific goals and translate our work into concrete societal impacts, we welcome your donation. We have seen measurable success from our past work and we will continue to prove why science is worthy of investment. History has shown that there’s an intrinsic value to letting scientists explore because such exploration is critical to future innovation and improved patient outcomes.
