The Luban Lab is funded by multiple sources. Like most academic labs in the United States, the majority of our financial support comes as project-specific, competitive grants from the National Institute of Health, a part of the United States federal government. NIH grants are typically 3 to 5 years in duration. In addition we seek funding from private foundations that devote resources to research on specific topics, such as the American Foundation for AIDS Research or the American Cancer Society.
We also welcome donations to our research program from private individuals. If you are interested in supporting us please click this link.
