Sponsor-A-Scientist: New Option to Fund Biomedical Research
Date:9/5/2009

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Sbarro Health Research Organization (www.shro.org), a nonprofit center for cancer, cardiovascular and diabetes research located at Temple University in Philadelphia and the University of Siena, Italy, has launched Sponsor-A-Scientist (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270448425234&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123), an innovative program that allows interested individuals to bid on e-Bay for a named fellowship to support a talented young scientist for one academic year.

The fellowship, which can be named in honor of a relative or loved one, will support a year of study under the direction of Antonio Giordano, M.D., Ph.D., the Founder and President of SHRO, the Director of the Sbarro Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine, and the Director of the Center for Biotechnology in the College of Science & Technology at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Giordano is also a 'Chiara fama' professor at the University of Siena, in Siena, Italy.

Despite recent increases in the budgets of the National Institutes of Health, which funds much of the country's biomedical research, dollars to pay for expensive research remain hard to come by for graduate and post-graduate students. Sponsor-A-Scientist's goal is to bring attention to and support for the work of young and gifted researchers, while giving the public an opportunity to be more directly involved in new and exciting medical discoveries.

"SHRO is at the forefront of molecular genetic discoveries in cancer and cardiovascular disease and in innovative methods to fund our important research," says Giordano. "This new initiative is an extension of our drive to support talented researchers and to uncover new resources to continue our work."

Bids for the Sponsor-A-Scientist program start at $25,000.
