Welcome To Our Rally Campaign
The science departments at King take great pride in our students who are amazing individuals, each with unique interests and career goals. We are helping them prepare for careers as diverse as medicine, engineering, toxicology research, genetic counseling and even bioterrorism policy.
Why We Are Raising Funds
As we continue updating our lab instrumentation and facilities, one of our greatest needs is for a refrigerated ultracentrifuge, a piece of equipment that is typically found at larger, research institutions. The overall budget for this phase of the laboratory upgrades is $20,000, and we have already received commitments from three science alumni for $8,000 toward the goal. Therefore, we need to raise an additional $12,000 to make this project a reality. Any amount we receive in addition to the $12,000 will be used to make further improvements to the labs.
A refrigerated ultracentrifuge is key for research in pharmacology, hematology, molecular genetics, and microbiology. This important piece of equipment separates individual components of cells, such as proteins, lipids, organelles and DNA or RNA. It will provide valuable hands-on experience and enhance students' learning both in their advanced lab courses, as well as in independent research experiences.
Join Our Rally and Spread the Word!
Your contributions will propel our students' preparation to the next level as they enter medical and research careers in service to their communities. Please join our Rally today and make a gift to help us reach our goal of at least $12,000. Also, please spread the word to others by using the social media links on this page. We greatly appreciate all the support we receive for King University and hope you will partner with us to help make this important project a reality for our students.
