Your gift will enable a wide range of activities and research e.g.: a trip for students/researchers to a conference to present their work, summer support for novel research for students, support for new interdisciplinary research, bringing world-leading researchers, artists and journalists for collaborations to Cornell, a new instrument to enable research that has never been done before in the lab among many other exciting creative and novel projects.
