Why were you interested in helping HWI?

I’m interested in helping HWI create awareness. Admittedly, it wasn’t until recently that I became familiar with HWI and I know I am not alone in that fact.

Why does research matter to you? 

HWI’s team, procedures, and mission are truly unique in comparison to what most may group their organization with. HWI is not simply another medical research institute. It’s less so the research that means more to me, it’s more so the how the brains behind the research at HWI operate to accomplish their mission.
