Research is expensive and government funding of scientific research is at a historic low. It currently takes more than 10 years and a billion dollars to bring a new drug or treatment from the laboratory bench to a patient’s bedside. We need your help to make this process go faster. 100% of your funds support Van Andel Institute scientists who are studying more than 20 different diseases, many that have impacted our hockey team and their families.
