Your impact

Private philanthropy plays a crucial role in the development of the research at the Human Microbiology Institute.


There are several different opportunities for you to make a positive impact on the achievement of our research goals. Feel pride in seeing your contributions facilitate the development of breakthrough technologies in different areas of human health, and the translation of these developments to novel therapies, including the production of a new generation of pharmaceutical compounds.


Gifts of $1,000 or more will qualify you for membership in the HMI. Upon request, members may be reported and declared as a source of funding within a special “funding” section on publications posted on the HMI website. Meanwhile, privileged members (those who provide more than $10,000) may, upon request, be reported and declared as a source of funding within  the “funding” section on presentations at conferences and on our special web site directory, which will be launched at the end 2016.
