The Origins of Life Initiative receives support from the Office of the President and Provost, as well as from the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. In recent years, both individual philanthropists and private foundations have contributed to the Initiative. As pioneers in this new field of origins of life research, we are grateful to the University and to our private donors for their investment in scientific discovery.
