Functional Molecular Biology Lab Fund

Research in the Functional Molecular Biology Lab into the effects of diet, exercise and age on musculoskeletal function is supported by a large number of exceptional undergraduate students. These students gain valuable hands-on research experience that makes them highly competitive of PhD, MD, DVM, and other science-related careers. However, many students, particularly those from underserved and underrepresented populations, face financial hardships that make them choose a paying job (that puts them at a disadvantage for advanced degrees) over a research experience. Please join us in supporting students in need who dream of having a career in science. Thank you.
