==================

Hi, everyone! I plan to climb Mt. Baker this weekend — this is a big challenge for me, because I am a passionate stem cell scientist, not a climber. I ask that you join my challenge by making a donation to the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM) at the University of Washington in Seattle. 

I’m taking one day to summit a mountain.

At ISCRM, we work hard, every day, to reach another summit: the elimination of diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

If you’d like to support ISCRM in honor of my climb, please click on the link below. It will take you to the University of Washington’s giving page, where you can make a tax-deductible gift.

With your support, and in this great state with inspiring, glaciered mountains, we can make a difference in modern medicine.
