Sponsor a project
We conduct more than $4 million in sponsored research each year. Sponsoring a project at the LRC gives you access to state-of-the-art facilities and experts from a variety of disciplines. In many cases, getting the word out is just as important as doing the research itself. As a project sponsor, you know your research results will reach the appropriate audience through our outreach programs and the efforts of our award-winning communications team.
Please contact LRC Associate Director Russ Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about project sponsorship. If you wish, you may also contact the researchers leading our current research initiatives:
