June 2022 | E-Newsletter
Missouri Cures Education Foundation is a statewide non-profit alliance working to promote & protect medical advances to improve the health of Missourians and stimulate the economy in our state. Donations are tax-deductible & support education and outreach programs.
From the Director's Desk:
Every month our newsletter brings you articles about the groundbreaking medical research happening in Missouri and around the globe. We want to keep you up to date about the discoveries being made in regenerative medicine, bioengineering, gene editing, and more. But, with limited space and bandwidth, it is important that we share information about the issues that are most important to you, our supporters. That is why we are asking you to take this very brief, 2-minute survey to help us understand which research topics you want to see us focus on in the future. 

Thank you for your continued support of our work to promote and protect medical research. 

Kindest regards,

Ellie Hayes
Executive Director
