Annual Fund for Excellence

Obesity is an epidemic and a root cause for other chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and dementia. At Pennington Biomedical Research Center, scientists are dedicated to finding solutions for these health problems.

Since the 1980s, our scientists have made discoveries that have global impact and improve the way people exercise, eat and think about chronic disease. Still, many questions remain about the triggers and treatments.

Your gift to the Annual Fund for Excellence guarantees:

    • crucial resources and equipment our scientists need in their labs
    • funding for research projects that make our scientists competitive for multi million dollar NIH grants
    • the recruitment and retention of world-renowned scientists

Your entire donation will go directly to funding scientific research that changes lives, as there is no development support fee.

Your gift is vital in the battle against chronic diseases.
