A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to UBRP this year!  We made our goal for the UBRP Travels crowdfunding campaign in raising $5,000 to support 10 students to travel to national scientific meetings to present their work.  Thus far, we have able to fund Steven Fried to travel to the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting in February, and we are excited to fund additional students later in the year, once circumstances allow for travel again.

We are preparing for 100 students to participate in UBRP and its umbrella programs in Summer 2020!  With Arizona’s continued stay-at-home order, many students are facing difficult economic times.  If you would like to support UBRP students in their research positions, please consider contributing to to the UBRP Fund.

The University of Arizona is taking campus-wide precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff in light of the current COVID-19 situation. With many individuals working remotely, we encourage you to make your gift to UBRP online.  If you prefer to support UBRP via check, please make your check out to the University of Arizona Foundation with your gift designation, “Fund 20-10-0426: Greatest Needs for UBRP” or “Fund 40-10-4740: UBRP Endowment” noted in the memo line. Checks may be sent directly to University of Arizona Foundation, 1111 N. Cherry Avenue, P.O. Box 210109, Tucson, AZ 85721-0109.
