Animare Endowment for the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology Department

Funds will be distributed annually supporting opportunities for the MCDB department's graduate students as a whole or for an individual student, with the primary intent of supporting the Graduate Student Symposium.

The MCDB Graduate Student Symposium is a biennial event held since 1979 that brings together leading researchers in both academic fields and cutting-edge biotechnology enterprises for two days of stimulating talks and interaction between members of the national and local scientific communities. The symposium is entirely student-organized, and as such, all of the planning and fundraising is conducted solely by graduate students.
