Breakthroughs for life.
At the University of Nebraska Medical Center, we are discovering new breakthroughs for life, helping Nebraskans live longer, healthier lives. Within the Department of Pathology and Microbiology, we are impacting the lives of our patients through expert diagnoses and innovative research; the lives of our students and residents through extraordinary education and training programs; and the lives of our faculty and staff though career development and program stewardship.

We believe that philanthropy can address major health issues in our community.
We ask you to join in our disease discoveries by supporting major research projects within the Department of Pathology and Microbiology. Every day, our researchers are working to develop new diagnostic tests and treatments for life-threatening illnesses. A list of those projects includes lymphoma and leukemia, breast cancer, colon and prostate cancers, soft tissue and bone tumors, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), enteroviruses, diabetes, and Alzheimers. If you would like to read more about our projects, please review our description of research activities. research laboratories.

We believe that donors have the power to transform higher education in Nebraska.
Our education programs are rapidly expanding for graduate students and post doctoral fellows in the fields of microbiology and pathology.  These students greatly benefit from fellowships established by donors.  Your gift would transform the lives of these students and trainees, allowing them access to state-of-the-art education and opportunities to conduct research side-by-side with renowned experts. In addition, we have added new clinical fellowships in surgical pathology, hematopathology, microbiology, and gastrointestinal pathology.  These highly trained individuals, in the future will fill important service positions at both the regional and national levels, bringing their expertise to the bench and the bedside.

We believe that the relationship with the donor is valued as much as the gift. 
Your gift to the Department of Pathology and Microbiology will change people's lives and leave a legacy of the donor or their designee.  We can assist you in identifying a project or topic to support that is most meaningful to you.   Your contribution is a valued investment in the future of a patient, student, research program, and Nebraska.

Please contact our chair, Dr. Steven Hinrichs, for more information on making a gift to support the Department of Pathology and Microbiology.  We will work together with the University of Nebraska Foundation to facilitate your gift.
