Wistar is poised for the future to make major research advances in the areas of cancer, immunology and vaccines, but we need your support. The Institute relies significantly on philanthropy to maintain its groundbreaking research programs.

The Institute’s independent nonprofit status creates a platform for our researchers to do original thinking and breakthrough research while also providing a community of collaboration – similar to a research “think tank” – not often found in larger medical and academic institutions. The Wistar Institute is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a nonprofit 501(c)3 with a federal tax ID (EIN) of 23-6434390.
