Charitable Giving

How your gift supports the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences

Virtually every major medical breakthrough derives from seminal discoveries in basic science laboratories. Every day at Johns Hopkins Medicine, scientists exercise exceptional creativity as they pursue answers to the most fundamental unsolved problems in biology, work that is the lifeblood of medical progress.

The potential of basic research has never been greater. Yet despite this tremendous momentum, the future of basic research not only at Johns Hopkins but throughout the nation is threatened. Federal research funding for biomedical research, traditionally our primary source of support, has decreased at the same time scientific innovations have led to an ever-increasing demand for research grants nationwide.

Private philanthropy is our hope for the future.

From seed grants to endowments, gifts to underwrite the creative work of basic scientists at Johns Hopkins will have a tremendous impact. Philanthropic support has never been more critically important than it is today, nor has the potential return on investment been greater.
