Institute for Regenerative Cures - 2016
We rely on grant and foundation funding and on philanthropy for our survival and to bring the best, cutting edge cures to our community members and to society. We spend 75% of our time applying for grants but it is never enough to fully support the newest, most advanced research. Each donation can be put to use immediately upon receipt to foster the research toward a specific disease on which our teams are working.
For instance a gift of $32.00 can support a mouse with Juvenile Huntington’s disease for a month while he or she helps us test our gene editing strategies for JHD.
