Donald J. Tindall, Ph.D. is the Carl Rosen Professor in Urology, Departments of Urology, Biochemistry Molecular Biology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.

“Funding from the T.J. Martell Foundation has been significantly relevant to my research efforts during the past 15 years. This is particularly true over the past 5 years when federal funding has been very scarce. Support from the T.J. Martell Foundation has allowed my laboratory to pursue novel and high risk studies for a better understanding of prostate cancer progression.

Furthermore, this funding has contributed to the professional development of a number of young investigators who are pursuing careers in prostate cancer research. Much of their success can be attributed to funding from the T.J. Martell Foundation. Now, many of these young investigators hold independent research positions as principal investigators at prestigious universities and research institutes. We are grateful for the support of the T.J. Martell Foundation for our efforts to understand the pathobiology of prostate cancer, to define markers for prognosis and to develop novel therapeutics against this devastating disease,” says our funded researcher, Donald Tindall, M.D. of Mayo Clinic.

A Fun Way to Give Back with Listia!

photo-1421986527537-888d998adb74Exciting news – we’re honored to be one of Listia’s designated charities for the month of June! Listia is a marketplace where you can trade things you don’t need anymore for stuff you want. It’s all free with no money involved. How cool is that?

With Listia’s monthly Charity Program, all members are encouraged to donate funds to charity without spending any money whatsoever. Members are able to donate a few of their Listia Credits to our foundation. While members donate their Credits, Listia matches those credits with real money which is then donated once the month is complete.

Since June is Prostate Cancer Awareness month, we will direct all funds raised through our partnership with Listia to our excellent prostate cancer research programs at Mayo Clinic, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and Columbia University Medical Center. Please click here to learn more and help support our prostate cancer research!

Thanks so much to our friends at Listia for their generous support!
