One of the projects that we are most excited about is our relationship with the A.P. Giannini Foundation. We provide communications training to their postgraduate fellows and have recently begun production of a new video series called Crossroads where A.P. Giannini Foundation fellows share the inside story of how basic medical research is conducted while holding the promise of impacting medical care.
On this episode of Crossroads
A.P. Giannini Foundation fellow Lisa Kronstad talks about her research at Stanford University School of Medicine where she is studying the influenza virus.
A short background on the A.P. Giannini Foundation
Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini was committed to promoting the discovery and treatment of human disease. On his 75th birthday, May 6, 1945, he created and endowed the A.P. Giannini Foundation to support innovative research in the basic sciences and applied fields. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided funding to over 900 postdoctoral biomedical researchers at California’s accredited medical schools. Giannini postdoctoral fellows are among the most highly respected medical and scientific investigators in their fields and have served as mentors to succeeding generations of young scientists.
