Ever since the Martinos family’s first capital gift to create the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in 1999, the Center has benefited from the generosity of its supporters.

Capital gifts, generally to the physical center or endowment, differ from annual support. Instead, capital gifts allow the Center the opportunity to look to its long-term future.

As the Center look ahead, there are areas that will need to be addressed through gifts. Some of these areas include:

  • Building the world’s most advanced imaging system, the Brain Architecture machine
  • An increase of the endowment – potentially for recruiting the best and brightest minds – to allow less dependence on NIH funding.
