Originating Calendar
Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology

Please join us for the Mikashi Award Impact Presentations, presented by the Catherine and Don Kleinmuntz Center for Genomics in Business and Society. We will hear final presentations from Mikashi awardees Dr. Brian Cunningham and Dr. Paul Hergenrother, who will share how Mikashi Award funding supported their work on cancer research.

RSVP here.

The Mikashi Awards provide consistency and support for developing innovation at the IGB. This funding helps IGB researchers bridge the "gap" between government-supported innovations that result from University research and private sector support of those innovations into commercial products and facilitate the transformation of researchers' discoveries and technologies into useful products services that benefit society.
