Support Innovative Research at JCVI
Why fund genomics research at JCVI? The answer is simple: It’s personal. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control, genomic factors play a role in 9 out of 10 leading causes of death in the US. Genomics is the source of understanding for how environmental factors, behavior and infectious disease will impact you, your family, your community and your world.
With your philanthropic gift to the J. Craig Venter Institute, you have the ability to affect real change in research that is revolutionizing the way we think about ourselves and the world around us, and in shaping the future of science.
At JCVI, our scientists are focused on uncovering new fundamental biological knowledge and developing new innovative genomic technologies to improve human health through earlier diagnoses, interventions and novel treatments and to protect the environment and sustain our natural resources. Recently ranked in the top 1% of research institutions around the world for research impact, with seven of our scientists identified among "The World's Most Influential Minds 2014,” JCVI continues to revolutionize genomics and unlock the secrets of our DNA.
From the first complete human genome, and continued analysis of individual genomes, to enabling technology for rapid vaccine development and deployment, to educating the scientists of tomorrow, and to an array of new applications of synthetic life, JCVI scientists remain at the forefront of biological discovery.
Whether you are passionate about educating future scientists, eradicating a specific disease or genetic disorder, funding efforts to improve the health of our planet, or simply want to ensure meaningful scientific advances continue, the scientists at JCVI need your support. With the reduction in federal research dollars available, JCVI is increasingly looking to private support of our bold initiatives. Your philanthropic support directly impacts the future of innovation and guarantees that together we can develop the solutions necessary to improve our human health and environment.
