Giving Blueday is the University of Michigan’s annual day of giving. Scheduled to coincide with Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving following Thanksgiving weekend. Each year DCMB has the chance to feature one fund as part of this university wide effort. This year we will highlight the DCMB Bioinformatics Graduate Student Fund.
The more than 80 graduate students in the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics (DCMB) work tirelessly looking for answers to science’s toughest questions, often with minimal financial support. They are the next generation of innovators and leaders in this field, applying to create new science, translational research, and creating new methods to improve public health and societal welfare. As of fall 2017, the Bioinformatics Graduate Program has graduated over 60 Ph.D. students and over 50 Master’s students.
Gifts to this fund will help support the next generation of Bioinformatics and Computational Medicine leaders.
Giving Blueday is a day for everyone who loves Michigan to join together to combine their support and maximize impact. The fifth annual Giving Blueday will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, from 12:00 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. EST.
