Help us boost the research on rare diseases!

Donations for the research of rare diseases at IMBA/Max Perutz Labs

Insights uncovered by molecular biology today can lead to new treatment methods tomorrow, directly benefiting patients.
In order to be able to keep the research project “Rare diseases/DBA” up and running, we need € 220,000 in donations and contributions per year. The money goes toward research staff, technical facilities, material costs and further training.

Automatic tax assessment
