Pursue Bold Ideas

Geisel immunologist Charles Sentman, PhD (right), and Tiffany Coupet (left), a Dartmouth College PhD candidate, discuss a line of immune cells that Sentman created to target cancer and other diseases.

We will make transformative discoveries that reveal the scientific underpinnings of health and catalyze the development of effective, personalized, and patient-centered approaches to disease treatment and prevention. We will approach complex challenges from fresh angles, dare to ask big questions, and accelerate the pace of innovation.

New philanthropic support totaling $155 million will fuel greater interdisciplinary collaboration and more rapid translation of bold ideas into real health outcomes.

“The best way to spark innovation is through interaction. It’s interaction between clinicians and researchers, and it’s interaction among disciplines throughout the sciences and the humanities that ignite creativity and help us approach problems in new ways.”
