How Your Leadership Gift Helps

Scientific research is complex and expensive. It takes many people, state of the art technology and equipment, and a wide range of chemicals and supplies to create breakthroughs. Your leadership gift provides meaningful support for our researchers. For example:

  • $2,500 sends a Damon Runyon scientist to our annual conference where they can share their findings and develop collaborations within our community of talent.
  • $5,000 allows our scientists to acquire critical computer equipment and software to perform complex analyses required in this era of ‘big data’.
  • $10,000 helps purchase essential lab supplies, like chemicals, reagents and antibodies needed to perform cutting-edge research.
  • $25,000 enables access to ‘core facilities’ at academic institutions, where researchers pay for time to use state-of-the-art technology and obtain specialized expertise to analyze results using technology like high resolution microscopy, genomic sequencing, bioinformatics, and flow cytometry.
