How you can help support stem cell research at UCR

Your support of the Stem Cell Core is vital to our continued development and enables UCR to make significant contributions to stem cell research, to train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and to develop biotechnology necessary for translation of stem cell technology to patients. Because the federal government provides little funding in this crucial area, it is especially important that donors help UCR develop a strong stem cell research and training program that will impact the region, the state and the nation.


Your gift can benefit the Core in many significant ways:
  • Funding a Stem Cell Seminar Series
  • Support for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their research at national meetings
  • Innovative pilot projects
  • Fellowships for graduate students and Scholarships for undergraduate students
  • Acquisition of equipment for stem cell research
  • Undergraduate summer internships
  • Support for the annual Stem Cell Workshop
  • Awards for outstanding student and postdoctoral research

When you make an outright gift, your contribution can be put to work immediately, either by providing funding for current programs or by creating reliable sources of future income by expanding the Core's endowment.

To make a donation, you may do any one of the following:

Major gifts to establish a named fund can also be arranged, for example, an Endowed Chair in Stem Cell Biology, a Graduate Fellowship or a Distinguished Lecture Fund. Holly Preble is available to discuss these or other leadership gifts to permanently link your name or someone you wish to honor with the Stem Cell Core Facility. For pledges of $25,000 or more, donors can complete their gift by making regular payments over time.

If you have any questions or would like more information on giving opportunities and how they can benefit the Core, please contact Dr. Talbot or Dr. Afrikanova.
