Sponsors Needed

If you are an individual or organization capable of donating evaluation equipment or services to BPF, or funds for our Research Grants or Competitor Evaluation Fund, a small pool of money competitors can apply for to offset some of their costs of competition, please contact us. We’d love to talk to you about becoming a BPF Sponsor.

Past Sponsors

Halcyon Molecular

Halcyon Molecular (2009-2012) was a very innovative biotechnology startup based in Redwood City, California, USA. The company was founded by Michael and William Andregg, who co-invented a revolutionary method of sequencing DNA by directly imaging nucleotide bases using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Halcyon offered BPF use of their electron microscopy facilities to evaluate potential winners of the Brain Preservation Technology Prize. We thank them greatly for this generous contribution to the cause of whole brain preservation science and technology.

Below is an electron micrograph taken on one of Halcyon Molecular’s scanning electron microscopes (a Hitachi s5500) of a slice of mouse cerebellum tissue prepared using standard chemical fixation and staining procedures.
