Institute for Protein Design


We need you to continue our ambitious work!  Make a gift today to support the UW Institute for Protein Design.

Our success depends on a number of factors: research, of course, but also the people and infrastructure that make exceptional research efforts possible.  Attracting top faculty is key, as is funding post-doctoral fellows and supporting the Institute’s operational needs.
