The TBRI Summer Undergraduate Research Program is off to a great start.

THANK YOU to Students from Our Savior Lutheran School!

by TBRI on 04/24/14

As part of an assignment to give back to the community, students (Drake, Hannah, Olivia, and Jocelyn) from Our Savior Lutheran School raised money for research at TBRI by selling pizza at a local restaurant. The owner of the restaurant graciously matched the money they raised.   At the end of our "Discover the Power" event these wonderful students presented TBRI's president (Dr. Akiko Tanaka) with a substantial check.  It was a wonderful way to conclude the event.  Again, we thank Drake, Hannah, Olivia, Jocelyn, their teacher and the restaurant owner for helping support TBRI!
