Scientific research is an expensive endeavor. In today’s economic climate, more and more time and energy of the academic scientist is devoted to working to obtain funding to support research.  Philanthropic support is thus increasingly valuable to provide researchers the seed money to enable pursuit of new projects and innovative directions.
