Champion Research

Research drives us, but results take resources and impact requires investment.

Supporting Informatics creates a critical funding stream that moves our work forward and leaves a lasting legacy for future generations. We encourage you to consider:

  • Establishing an endowed chair. Your gift can play a vital role in helping renowned faculty members translate academic research into real-world outcomes.
  • Making a corporate gift. Your company can partner with us to identify and advance cutting-edge research that is far-reaching and mutually beneficial.
  • Opening doors. We are always on the lookout for new partners, projects, and opportunities. Through close collaboration, we accelerate dynamic innovation.
  • Communicating the vision. Informatics has the power to transform the way we live, work, and build in a digital world. You can advance our efforts by sparking conversations about what we do.
