Supporting our research

Research laboratories cannot exist without support. If you are interested in supporting our laboratory, please contact Mitch Beckman at the University of Iowa Foundation at (319) 467-3402, email: Support comes from patients, families and others who volunteer to participate in research studies—thank you all! Important financial support is provided by grant agencies and foundations and the National Institutes of Health. Philanthropic donations are becoming more important than ever for biomedical research as NIH funding as been reduced in recent years. We recently received a very generous donation from the Chakraborty Family Foundation for research on Juvenile X-linked Retinoschisis, a condition that affects boys’ vision early in life. Every donation helps research proceed faster.
