Every donation, no matter the size, helps us in our quest to engineer disease out of life. Here are some examples of what your generosity will fund:

$25          Liquid food to grow cancer cells outside of the body

$50          Microscope supplies to study how delivery vehicles transport drugs inside of cells

$100        Insulin for diabetes treatment experiments

$250        The ingredients to make personalized medicine packaged into lipid nanoparticles

$500        Blood tests that ensure our delivery vehicles are safe

$1000+    All materials needed test a cure for disease (e.g. diabetes) in an animal model

Please contact Prof. Whitehead if you would like to make a specific funding request.


The donate link will take you to a Carnegie Mellon giving page that will ask you to enter a dollar amount. 100% of your donation will go to the Whitehead Lab. You will also be asked for your name and email address. You do not have to choose a Department for your gift - it will automatically be allocated to the Whitehead Lab.
