Philanthropic Support for Tomorrow's Scientists
Partners provide philanthropic support that advances Mason Science, the region, and our nation in the common missions of solving the world’s problems and training tomorrow’s scientists.
In a time of crisis around the world, two of our Mason Science partners came together to make a global impact. Through the generosity of Schmidt Futures, our partners at Ceres Nanosciences Inc. received a $250,000 grant to explore and develop new ways to better diagnose the coronavirus. Because of this grant, Mason virologist Kylene Kehn-Hall and her colleagues will be able to use Nanotrap® particles to develop more reliable testing, and help to slow the spread of the global pandemic.
