SQI: Simpson Querry Institute

Giving

Support our innovative research.

The Simpson Querrey Institute (SQI) at Northwestern University is leading the way in exploring bio-inspired science and technologies to address medical and energy needs. Our cross-disciplinary team includes scientists, engineers and medical researchers who are making great advances and discoveries.

Within SQI the Center for Regenerative Nanomedicine is demonstrating the ability to guide and sustain stem cells; regenerate bone, cartilage, organs, and tissues; and develop novel therapies to fight cardiovascular disease. The Center for Bio-Inspired Energy Science is developing soft robotic materials, synthetic soft materials that can react like natural muscles, and photocatalytic systems with exciting new properties. 

But our work has just begun. Our founding gifts and grants have laid a solid foundation, but we still need the help of visionary sponsors to grow. That help can take a variety of forms: sponsoring new faculty or post-doctoral researchers or gifts that enable vital equipment purchases and expansion of the SQI laboratories.
