Opportunities to Give
Investment in the LSI will support leading-edge multidisciplinary research, the recruitment and training of scientists and clinical practitioners, and the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment – all of which would ultimately lead towards improved treatment of disease and an improved ability to maintain wellness.
Personalized Medicine Projects
Drug therapies for conditions like cancer, autism, and hemophilia often have negative side effects that outweigh their benefits. At the LSI, a strong focus on “personalized medicine”—health care based on the unique molecular makeup of each individual—is being pursued to improve these health outcomes. Personalized medicine is leading to an improved understanding of individuals’ risk factors and disease prevention tactics, safer drug therapies, and more effective treatments for each patient. Multidisciplinary teams of researchers and physicians at the LSI are currently involved in 11 Personalized Medicine Projects to better treat diseases as diverse as asthma and major immune disorders. These experts are gaining knowledge about the specific gene structures that lead to disease and are identifying safe treatment options that can be tailored to each patient. Your support is urgently needed to continue vital research into personalized medicine. Each contribution leads scientists closer to a cure for some of the world’s most devastating diseases.
The LSI is working to inspire the next generation of medical researchers and to provide them with the tools necessary to make an impact. Your help is urgently needed to help life sciences students progress and achieve their goals.
Now more than ever, students in the life sciences need practical information and hands-on experience to become the researchers of tomorrow. From high school to post-graduate students, each individual requires resources to take the next step in scientific advancement. As high school students face daunting career decisions, real-world experience in an active science environment gives them a broader understanding of what a career in the sciences entails. As undergraduate students, interns, graduate students, and trainees embark on groundbreaking projects to discover treatments and potential cures, these students flourish with access to internships, modern laboratory supplies, student awards, and the funding to work alongside renowned scientists.
