Why We Fundraise
The award of substantial public sector research funding to SPRINT-TB is a testament to the scientific quality and clinical impact of the work we do. However, the process of securing public sector funding requires substantial time - usually at least 18 months for rigorous international and local review before funding is awarded and available for use.
SPRINT-TB is at the cutting edge of TB research, brimming with innovation and ideas. Currently the only limit on the expansion of our research is the funding available to develop these new ideas into initial studies. Some of these may be completed in a short time and others may grow into larger studies that can be put forward for later public sector funding. We rely on donations and other discretionary funding to kick-start these new projects, thereby maximising the contribution that Singapore and SPRINT-TB can make to the to global fight against tuberculosis.
How You Can Help
With gratitude, we welcome each and every donation, which will be held by National University of Singapore and used exclusively for SPRINT-TB research activities.
Some ground-breaking ambitious projects may require large sums for execution, while a number of smaller innovative projects can be conducted on a more modest budget. No donation is too big or too small and will be essential in supporting TB research.
We welcome enquiries or proposals at any time. Here is an easy way to contact us:
