Donations to IIGB are used toward a variety of activities and programs that prepare new generations of scientists for the exciting new era of interdisciplinary, genomics science. Your donations will assist both young and established researchers to develop novel approaches and technologies to solve many of the complex health and environmental issues facing local and international communities today.

    An outright gift may be composed of almost any asset of value, is tax deductible, and can be used immediately to benefit the Institute and its Centers in many significant ways. Please read below about ways to contribute to the mission of the Institute and its Centers

    The IIGB Innovation Fund was established in 2007 to broadly support the mission of the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology and its affiliated Centers: the Center for Plant Cell Biology, the Biotechnology Impacts Center, and the Center for Disease Vector Research. Donations received through this fund will assist the Institute and Centers in endeavors such as those listed below.

    – Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers and graduate students and scholarships for undergraduate students

    – Funding a Seminar Series or Symposium for IIGB and/or its affiliated Centers.

    – Support for students and postdoctoral researchers to present their research at national/international meetings

    – Innovative pilot interdisciplinary research projects

    – Acquisition and maintenance of equipment to facilitate research

    – Support for training/workshops on instrumentation or research approaches

    – Undergraduate student internships

    – Awards for outstanding achievement by postdoctoral researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students

    – Community outreach and student recruitment efforts

    The Natasha V. Raikhel Award in Research Innovation and Science Leadership was established in 2016 to honor the legacy of the former IIGB Director, Natasha V. Raikhel, by recognizing pioneering research and effective leadership by an IIGB faculty or non-Academic Senate member

    The Center for Plant Cell Biology and the Center for Infectious Disease Vector Research each have donation opportunities that benefit their own specialized endeavors.
