Exploring the Science of Life
Gifts to Biology support our educational mission by enabling fundamental discovery, innovation, and research.
Paul Schimmel PhD ’67
What makes the life sciences at MIT so extraordinary is their ability to transfer knowledge and inventions to society for its benefit. That is much of why Kendall Square and Boston are what they are. Kendall Square is to biopharma what Silicon Valley is to technology. None of the robust economic impact would have occurred if it hadn’t been for MIT’s life sciences. They help everyone, and now they need our help. I feel giving in this way is a cogent test of maturity and the state of one’s own heart.
