With a visionary investment connecting life sciences to entrepreneurship, Mark and Stephanie Robinson are fast tracking innovation at UC Berkeley. The Robinsons have given a total of $10 million to support bio-entrepreneurship at Berkeley, creating resources for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty that leverage our university’s edge in basic science research while preparing the next generation of business leaders.
While our research is always advancing and our teaching is always improving, our core needs remain constant. It is our people – faculty and students – who bring excellence to Berkeley, so funding for faculty positions and graduate student fellowships are our very top priorities.
