Help Build the Center

image
The Center relies on its individual and institutional partners for financial, intellectual and strategic support.  We have accomplished much in our first few years and continue to expand and develop the Center and its programs. 

Our supporters appreciate the importance of understanding how changes occur in science, technology and medicine — and how these changes shape our lives.  Your contribution will fund research fellowships, public and academic events, and online projects such as our regional calendar and library catalogs search hub. 

I invite you to add your name to the list of supporters who are helping build the Center.
