Foundation Gifts

Biomedical Technician Training Program

Private foundations provide essential support in many ways:

• Young scientists rely on foundations to help them launch their research careers and gather the data needed to compete successfully for federal research grants.

• Senior scientists seek foundation funding to take their research in new directions and pursue novel, high-risk, high-reward ideas.

• All scientists rely on foundation support to purchase new instrumentation necessary for cutting edge research.

• The next generation of scientists is trained by Wistar with the support of foundations. Wistar provides education programs at the high school, college, doctoral, and postdoctoral levels.
