There’s a new model for how scientific research can happen. Microryza is bringing the power of direct crowdfunding to science. 

Elizabeth Iorns, CEO and cofounder of Science Exchange is doing original research into preventing breast cancer. In her words:

Most research focuses on how to treat cancer once it has developed in BRCA carriers. This approach aims to provide a non-invasive way to prevent transmission of the BRCA mutation to offspring, removing the high cancer development risk. 

The total cost for this experiment is $15,000. The animal experiments will be conducted by Dale Cowley, Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina Animal Models Core via Science Exchange

Donate directly to this research effort at Microryza and get updates on the specific progress and results as they happen.
