The Microbiome Center relies on the generosity of donors to support inter-disciplinary research to understand and harness the power of the microbiome. Philanthropic giving directly supports high-risk, high-reward research, the training of interdisciplinary scientists, and the development of tools and therapeutics - all that have the potential to impact the health of people and ecosystems across the earth.
Gifts at every level help to further the work of the Microbiome Center. Expendable and endowment giving opportunities are available to support faculty research, early-stage seed funding, education and training programs, and technology/application development. The Microbiome Center provides support and helps to transform early-stage research into comprehensive research programs.
