Support Our Research:

Biomedical research is an expensive enterprise. Private donations play an essential role in supporting research, especially today when government support is being cut back. Your contribution would significantly aid and accelerate our ability to conduct vital research. For a description of our research for nonscientists, click above on the link called “What we do (for nonscientists).”

The University of Southern California is a 501(c)3 non-profit, educational institution. Research donations are, therefore, tax deductible.
