BioIVT, a leading provider of research models and services for drug and diagnostic development, today announced that it is making several charitable donations in December to honor its clients’ commitment to medical research.
This year, BioIVT is recognizing four non-profit healthcare organizations that support exceptional research to eradicate diseases that affect millions of people. During December, BioIVT will highlight the work of, and make a financial contribution to, the following organizations: Cancer Research Institute, Global Liver Institute, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, and PATH.
“2020 has been an incredibly challenging year. The COVID-19 pandemic has required medical researchers around the world to continue their studies, in spite of the requirement of socially distancing and other obstacles that had made a difficult assignment even harder. Balancing work and home life has never been tougher with closed schools, ever changing guidelines, and limited access to work facilities. Despite these constraints, we are seeing great global cooperation and medical breakthroughs occurring at a rapid rate,” said BioIVT Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Gatz. “Our clients dedicate tremendous brain power, time, and resources to advance medical research and make a positive impact on human health. In honor of their hard work and important missions, BioIVT is making a financial contribution to these featured organizations that, like our clients, are relentlessly driving research forward.”
BioIVT’s chosen charities have broad, long-term goals that will benefit everyone. Cancer Research Institute supports researchers around the world who are developing immunotherapies to one day create a world without cancer. Global Liver Institute works to improve the lives of those affected by liver diseases, while also trying to eradicate the illnesses. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund supports research to prevent, slow the progression, and reverse Alzheimer’s disease. PATH’s goal is to improve health outcomes for more than 1.4 billion people worldwide through programs that expedite vaccine development and delivery, make high-impact diagnostic tools affordable, and improve access to drugs where they are needed most.
