Our investigators are successful in obtaining grants to support much of their work, but there are still areas where we need your help.

  • Invest in the next generation of researchers. Support an undergraduate, graduate student or postdoctoral researcher working in a subject area that interests you. There are always more talented students than fellowships.
  • Help us bring world-class experts to campus to meet with students, faculty, the public and you.
  • Become a champion for valuable programs. Help us continue and expand programs such as Life Sciences and Society Program Symposium, which explores the intersections between the life sciences and human cultures, and Life Sciences Week, MU’s premier event highlighting advances in the life sciences, and more.
