Anyone can support the ongoing research efforts of INBT faculty and students. Any size donation is welcome, and without the support of individuals like you, we could not carry on our mission to its full potential

Here are a few examples of what your important donation can actually buy for INBT’s research initiatives

  • $500 buys a pH meter, vortex, or sonicator, tools used daily in the lab
  • $1,000 buys a set of pipettes or pays for a student to travel to a conference to learn about state-of-the-art technologies
  • $5,000 buys a cell culture incubator or a vacuum pump
  • $10,000 buys a bench top centrifuge used to spin down DNA samples
  • $50,000 pays for a graduate students salary and expenses for 1 year

Can we count on your support? The current state of government sponsored funding remains volatile. Therefore, we count on a variety of funding sources to maintain our momentum toward solving some of the major health challenges facing humanity.
