creating a
healthier future

Be a hero. Support science.

Science often seems to be disconnected from our everyday lives, tucked away in laboratories and universities. Actually, it is always with us in everything we do and use, from the cell phone to the microwave oven, and from television to GPS. Science is a superpower pushing humanity beyond its abilities, allowing us to fly, reach the Moon, cure diseases, and generate electricity.

Just like the society we live in, it is the power of community that moves science along; it is made by people for people. Each of us can be a hero and wield our superpower by contributing to fighting threats that loom over humanity and coming up with solutions that benefit all of us.
