Seeking donations so we can continue to do awesome science!

If you, your business, or your community organizations engage in any form of charitable giving, please consider a tax-deductible donation to our lab and our research efforts. Donations can be accepted as a designated gift through the University of Illinois Foundation and can be completed online by specifying our fund (339456 – Clancy Evolution Endo Research) in the bottom section of the form. See image below for an example, followed by step-by-step instructions.

What will we do with your donation?

We can’t guarantee exactly what we’ll do with your donation, but here’s a list of things that we’d like to spend more money on:

  • Paying undergraduates and graduate students to work in our lab
  • Printing posters when students present their research at conferences and symposia
  • Printing fliers for recruiting research participants for our studies
  • Research supplies (gloves, pipettes, sample collection supplies, plastic baggies, assays, etc)
  • Travel expenses for lab members to present their work or get additional training
  • Travel expenses for visitors to our lab to present their work or get training from our lab
  • Occasional food and (non-alcoholic) beverages for lab meetings or lab events

Right now we often pay for these expenses out of pocket (printing posters, travel expenses, snacks) or rely on grant funding (research supplies, paying lab members for their labor).
