The research of the Nigrovic laboratory has been supported by generous patients and families, including the Cogan Family Foundation, the Arbuckle Family Fund for Arthritis Research, and the Fundación Bechara.  Philanthropy enables the lab to pursue early-phase and high-risk research not yet eligible for support from sources such as the National Institutes of Health.  Philanthropic donations are tax deductible and can be targeted to specific projects.  Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Nigrovic.
