Stony Brook University Protein S Research


Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon,

 

I hope you are doing well!

 

My name is Maulik and I am a part of a synthetic biology research team called iGEM representing Stony Brook University in an international competition. I am writing to let you know about a crowdfunding effort my team and I are undertaking to help fund our research project which involves finding a new, effective and safe solution for patients with a blood clotting disorder related to Protein S deficiency.

 

iGEM, which stands for “International Genetically Engineered Machine,” is a competition where teams apply synthetic biology to solve specific problems all around the world. Our team is focused on Protein S deficiency, a disorder of blood clotting which affects people with a genetic disposition and those affected by severe cases of COVID-19.

 

For a while now, our team has been facing the troubles of funding a research project. Especially for undergraduate projects like ours, funding is a huge issue. In our search for support, we realized that since we are primarily doing this project to help the community, crowdfunding may be a choice for us. This is why we have teamed up with WeSci.org - a crowdfunding platform where researchers can submit their unfunded ideas to receive funding directly from interested backers. By contributing to our project on WeSci you can have a direct impact on our research, which in the long run can bring help not only to patients with Protein S deficiency, but also those suffering from severe forms of COVID-19 who develop this deficiency as a side-effect. 

 

We would deeply appreciate it if you can back our campaign and help our us reach out to people who would be willing to contribute to our cause!

 

Below is our campaign link, with our project description and contribution link!

Thank you for your time and kind consideration!

 

Best,

Maulik and the 2022 iGEM team.
