The TRiM 2030 Endowment, “TRiM 2030,” was established to build sustainable funding for the Center for Transformative Research in Metabolism (TRiM) that will be used to support an endowed Center Director to accelerate discovery and reduce the burden of metabolic disease. The Center’s vision is to translate hibernation research to improve human health, so that we can turn the curve on the rising costs of healthcare in Alaska and add quality of life to years.

Donations made to the endowment are permanently restricted. Established in 2021, the goal of the TRiM 2030 Endowment fund is to raise a corpus of over $5,000,000 with the ability to generate $250,000 in earnings annually by 2030 to support a Center Director to advance the mission of TRiM.
