A donor who wishes to remain anonymous made a $1 million commitment to support the groundbreaking work of CSU’s Center for Gene Regulation in Health and Disease (GRHD).
This generous gift will fund scholarships, post-doctoral fellowships, pilot and bridge research needs and equipment needs, and will be instrumental in attracting additional private and public investment to further expand and strengthen the Center’s research portfolio.
Since its inception in 2008, GRHD has become one of the leading gene research centers in the country with a focus on improving the understanding of basic biological processes and how the malfunction of these processes results in disease, with the ultimate goal of developing novel cures and treatment approaches.
In the past eight years, GRHD researchers have received more than $20 million in extramural funding. The Center is home for 15 faculty members from the departments of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry and Physics, as well as over 50 graduate students in the CSU/Cleveland Clinic joint Ph.D. programs in Regulatory Biology and Clinical-Bioanalytical Chemistry.
