“Your gift helps make today’s potential tomorrow’s healthier reality. Research is the key.”

William Hutchinson, MD
PNRI Founder

“If our society continues to support basic research on how living organisms function, it is likely that my great grandchildren will be spared the agony of losing family members to most types of cancer.”

Paul Boyer, Nobel Prize winner

“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”

Albert Einstein

“I believe in innovations and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts.”
