There’s still time to donate for MMRI’s 12 Days of Giving! We are thrilled that every dollar donated will be MATCHED up to $9,000, thanks to a generous donor! We are challenging our dedicated supporters like you to make a donation, large or small, to help our scientists advance their research in our core research areas: cardiovascular, neurocognitive and autoimmunity.

Our impact hits home for millions of Americans — as one in five Americans die due to heart disease (CDC). A local heart disease survivor, Ryan Leogrande, can attest to the importance of our cardiovascular research.

“After watching myself flatline, I made a number of life changes, including better diet and more exercise,” said Leogrande. “I’m so thankful that there are scientists such as Dr. Nathan Tucker and the rest of the MMRI team, whose research will help ensure that myself and other dads can be around to watch their children grow up.”

Don’t forget! When you donate $50 or more, you’ll receive our exclusive 2024 MMRI calendar. Consider donating to MMRI for 12 Days of Giving before the last day on December 22, 2023. Visit to give.
