Our graduate students and faculty members are participating in some of the most important medical breakthroughs of our time.

They are racing to solve today’s most disheartening diseases, test innovative prevention strategies, and develop improved treatments. Private support continues to fuel these efforts and spark exciting collaborations with other leading research institutions.


What Could Your Gift Do?

Research endowments—established through a gift of $100,000—have the potential to yield tangible benefits beyond our campus and are particularly vital in nurturing the work of junior faculty, who hold unique promise but face difficulty acquiring funds from conventional sources.

However, you can make a gift of any amount to benefit research projects currently underway or to strengthen the impact of active endowments. If you would like more information about a particular research area, please contact our office or visit Penn State College of Medicine's research website.
