The Molecular Biology Institute was been built on a foundation of philanthropy. Much of what we have accomplished over the past 50 years has been made possible by supporters who believe in our mission. Here are some new initiatives we are working on and we welcome your feedback and involvement!
Boyer-Parvin Postdoctoral Awards
Founding MBI Director Paul Boyer was a staunch advocate for postdoctoral scholars. He admired the skills, intellect and enthusiasm they brought to science and the impact of their research on advancing our knowledge of the living world. In 1999 Dr Boyer donated a portion of his Nobel Prize to establish the Postdoctoral Awards. Friend and colleague James Peter, supporter Albert Parvin and Amgen Inc. added to the fund, which recognized over 100 exceptional postdoctoral scholars over a 15 year period.
We’re beginning an exciting new era: with the generous support of the Parvin Foundation, we have established the Boyer-Parvin Postdoctoral Awards. We hope you will join in this effort by making a gift, which will ensure the continued recognition of postdoctoral scholars and the Boyer legacy for decades to come.
