Current Sponsors

MABRRI's research and community engagement projects are funded through grants and donations. Below is a list of funders the institute has received financial contributions from. We would like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors, without their continued support MABRRI would have limited capacity to hire and provide students with real, hands-on research experience.
