Tory Burch Fellowship



The Tory Burch Fellowship at the IGI furthers the institute’s mission of translating genome-editing and biotechnology tools into affordable and accessible solutions in human health, climate, and agriculture. The program seeks to support scientists whose work involves the development of solutions to global problems, and who aim to benefit the public by developing their ideas for eventual commercial translation. The one-year program will provide one selected fellow the opportunity to participate in Tory Burch Foundation programs, while receiving up to $150,000 in salary and benefits, mentoring and entrepreneurial training, as well as space at the IGI to develop their ideas.
