Labfundr launched its first campaign
Eric Fisher, a scientific researcher founded Labfundr with the goal to help scientists to raise funding from non-traditional sources, all sorts of people who see the value of the research. Another goal of the platform is to bring the scientific community closer to the general public and inspire communication between them. Labfundr also allows the financial donors to follow the research, therefore giving them the opportunity to feel that they are part of the team.
The first crowdfunding campaign with CALIPER - the Canadian Laboratory Initiative on Paediatric Reference Intervals, is developing a repository of data on healthy blood samples for children and teenagers.
