The Race to Discover New Treatments

Never before has biomedical research offered so much potential for new, life-changing treatments and cures. Fresh knowledge and tools related to genetics, targeted therapies, and immunology are all leading to remarkable advances in the understanding and treatment of a vast range of illnesses and injuries.

Gifts for medical research and nursing further the advancement of scientists on the brink of discovery and offer immense potential for changing how we treat illness and injuries in the future. 

What Does It Take?

Private support jumpstarts promising research efforts. These gifts help retain, attract, and energize talented investigators and serve as a wise investment—what we discover here at UVA helps investigators across the nation and beyond.

You can support research at UVA in several areas:

  • Fellowship Support
  • Faculty Recruitment and Retention Packages
  • Start-up funding

What Your Gift Can Do

  • Speed life-saving discoveries to prevent and treat disease by providing seed funds for research
  • Quickly move discoveries out of the laboratory and to the bedside by supporting clinical trials
  • Put more researchers to work on finding cures by establishing professorships to help us recruit the most talented physicians, scientists, and nurse leaders
  • Give our researchers the resources and equipment they need to search for answers
  • Fund nursing research in clinical protocols and new tools to improve patient care
