What does your fundraising do?

$300-$600   Buys materials and covers costs to manufacture prototypes for new ventricular assist devices (which help to keep heart failure patients alive while waiting for a transplant).
$400   Buys an antibody that is essential to identify cell types and to understand their functional role. This is important in better understanding cells to help reduce transplant rejection rates.
$800   Buys a DNA or RNA extraction kit to look at DNA and gene expression, so we can better understand what happens to organs when they’re donated.
$1,000   Buys an armband to assess physical activity of a patient before and after transplant.
$1,500   Buys an orbital shaker (or other similar equipment) that are essential items in biological research laboratories.
$5,000   Buys a liquid nitrogen storage tank to store valuable biological samples in, used for testing new transplant technologies.
$10,000   Funds a new investigator grant – brilliant young researcher career starter.
$25,000   Funds an emerging researcher for a year or PHD scholarship – helping keep the best and brightest looking into some the world’s worst illnesses and diseases.
