Molecular Biology Donors

The Department of Molecular Biology (MOL) would like to acknowledge the generous donors who have supported the research and teaching missions of our department with endowed funds or large term gifts.  Endowed funds for Senior Thesis Research allow MOL to provide stipends for rising seniors to participate in an immersive, 9-week thesis research summer program enabling them to make spectacular discoveries in their thesis research. Other donors have provided endowed fellowship funds for our graduate students, launching the careers of the next generation of life scientists. Still other donors have provided innovation funds awarded to faculty that seed high-risk, high-reward research projects.  We are grateful for the gifts that have helped MOL ensure its continued leadership position in life science teaching and research.
