All bench, no bureaucracy. The Discovery MS research initiative at the David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) is up-ending the standard funding model for biomedical research, proposing to establish a core endowment which will fund our research projects in perpetuity. An independent research endowment will allow us to pursue high-risk, high-reward research projects that aren’t restricted to timelines established by granting agencies.
Your tax-deductible donation supports:
- cutting-edge exploratory research that typically isn’t funded by conventional low-risk funding mechanisms
- a sustainable funding model, freeing scientists to stay at the bench instead of pursuing grants
- discovery-driven research that follows the results without being locked into a specific research project
