Generous donations from Missouri S&T Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering Departments make our work possible. Special thanks to Fred Kielhorn, Richard Vitek of Fotodyne, Marcus Hayer of Exxon Mobil, Monsanto, and MidSci Scientific. The Missouri S&T cDNA Center (Vanessa Rawson, Adam Martin, and Dr. Robert Aronstam) and our advisors, Dr. Westenberg and Dr. Shannon, provide extensive support and services. Missouri S&T Student Council and the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center are valued sources of administrative and financial help.
Our team also has a sponsorship package available to corporate sponsors. Rewards include recognition during presentations, on team clothing, and at events, an opportunity to sponsor a campus wide event or an off-campus event, and other rewards detailed in our sponsorship package. Our team gives students the chance to improve their leadership and communication skills, as well as design and carry out synthetic biology research projects. We depend on your help to pay for necessary supplies and host events that reach many young minds. If you are interested in sponsoring our team, please send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
