What do you care about?
Finding cures for cancer, asthma, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and other devastating diseases? Ending hunger around the world? Tackling obesity in America through more nutritious foods? Better educating our young people so they can take the reins of scientific innovation in the future?
BIO5 scientists and educators are making huge strides in improving health and life in the 21st century. To continue this work, diverse funding is needed- including philanthropic investments from individuals and foundations that share this vision for a better future. Here are just a few ways we are changing the world with your help:
Inspiring Future Scientists
BIO5 is committed to educating and inspiring the next generation of scientists and innovators. Through our outreach programs, we strive to impact teachers and students from around the state. The KEYS (Keep Engaging Youth in Science) summer internship program provides high school students with laboratory experience and the unique ability to work side-by-side with world-class scientists on research projects. Your gift helps inspire the scientists of tomorrow.
Understanding & Defeating Diseases
The BIO5 Institute is the catalyst for cutting edge, collaborative research across disciplines that will allow us to better prevent, treat, and cure diseases that drastically impact humanity. Understanding and defeating devastating diseases like cancer, asthma, Alzheimer's, and diabetes takes teams of scientists thinking about challenges in new ways. Your gift helps accelerate the pace of novel research and the development of effective diagnostics and therapies.
Advancing Brain Research
Every year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with neurological diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, autism, multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Researchers at the BIO5 Institute are making tremendous strides in understanding these disorders, with a goal of eradicating them completely. Your gift supports research that will make this possible.
Improving Nutrition & Fighting Hunger
In developed nations, obesity has become a staggering health issue. In developing nations, the opposite is true as hunger continues to be an enduring problem. BIO5 researchers are studying how to improve the nutritive value of foods, as well as increase crop productivity and viability. Your gifts help researchers achieve these vital goals.
Invasive diagnostic procedures can be dangerous, and at the very least, uncomfortable for patients. Researchers at BIO5 are leaders in the development of new, non-invasive imaging tools for earlier diagnosis and treatment of disease. Your gift helps us continue to develop advanced diagnostic imaging technology that will provide better markers to measure health versus disease.
These unrestricted funds support the life-changing work being done at BIO5. They are used for emerging projects that advance the Institute's mission of building a healthier world.
