The goal is to use the work of the center to catalyze the formation of new companies and the creation of new jobs in the field of immune-based biotechnology. IU School of Medicine welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with individuals and organizations from pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and other relevant fields of medicine.

Philanthropic Opportunities

The need for immunotherapy research is urgent. Discoveries made in the Brown Center for Immunotherapy will translate into new treatments – and longer lives for patients with cancer and other devastating medical conditions. But research is expensive.

Though IU School of Medicine is a public medical school, the state of Indiana funds only about 10 percent of its operating cost. At the same time, funding from sources such as the National Institutes of Health is scarce. Philanthropic support is vital.
