A special note of thanks to the following individuals who have graciously donated to the Hittinger Lab to help us to continue to fund great research.

  • William J. Saucier, MD, MS

Do you wish to fund some yeast research? You can! There are now 2 ways to donate.

    1.The first is to email hittingerlab at genetics dot wisc dot edu, and we will send you a link to donate to a UW Foundation account that will be transferred into our lab accounts. This way is fastest.
    2. The second is to fill out and mail this document in Word or in PDF, and please update with the correct information. It would still help to email us so that we know to watch for it. This way is slowest, but it can be done anonymously without emailing us.

A big THANK YOU! to the Wine and Hop Shop on Monroe Street for a great deal on our airlocks! These will allow us to test wild yeast fermentation abilities for potential bioenergy uses. Thank you for helping us keep research affordable!
