Targeted Gifts and Endowment

  • CSCI Seed Grants ($25,000-$100,000)
    Seed grants are one-year awards that provide early-stage funding to jump start novel research projects addressing challenges from across the entire field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
  • CSCI Research Awards ($100,000-$500,000)
    Research awards provide two or more years of funding for research projects aimed at making significant advances in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Named awards can be targeted to a specific research area of particular interest for the donor (aging, cancer, diabetes, neurodegeneration, etc.).
  • CSCI Equipment Funds ($250,000-$1,000,000)
    Equipment funds provide a unique opportunity to bring new technology to CSCI and allow researchers to perform cutting-edge research in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Equipment carries the name of the donor.
  • Endowed Professorship ($3,000,000 and over)
    Endowed professorships are essential for attracting and retaining leaders in the field of stem cell and regenerative biology. Professorships carry the name of the donor, linking a family’s name with a legacy of innovation, education, and research in stem cell and regenerative medicine.
