Build the Helix Campaign
Fostering scientific research in genetics is an important part of ISONG's mission. ISONG is embarking on a new Nursing Research Directed Donations Campaign to offer nursing research grants for our members.
With the guidance of the ISONG Research Committee we are reaching for a goal of $2,000 to award a grant. The progress will be visible through a DNA helix graphic that will be featured on our website.
The helix will be a visual of how the DNA forms the building blocks of life, and likewise, how support from our members forms the building blocks to launch independent research programs. In a similar way, just as the sugar phosphate backbone supports the DNA, mentorship supports budding scientists. Finally, just like the hydrogen bonds between base pairs, two friends or collaborators can form a bond to move science forward.
Donations help to build these bases and grow our helix towards the ultimate goal of offering this important grant to an ISONG member.
