Support the Laboratory

The Birge Laboratory is a non-profit laboratory focused on the eradication of cancer. We conduct basic medical and scientific research on three areas:

  1. Immunomodulatory functions of Phosphatidylserine (PS) in the tumor microenvironment
  2. Mechanisms by which TAM tyrosine kinases (Tyro3, Axl, Mertk) regulate efferocytosis, immune suppression, and cancer progression
  3. Mechanisms by which epithelial cells invade and metastasize by Crk oncogene

Funding Sources

Research in my laboratory has been funded by:

  1. National Institutes of Health (NIGMS, NCI)
  2. Department of Defense (Congressionally Directed Medical Research on Breast Cancer)
  3. EMD Serono
  4. Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (now Avid Bioservices)
  5. ElsaLys
  6. Rutgers Foundation (Tech Advance)
  7. New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research (NJCCR)
  8. GLAdiator Bioscience - CipherBio
  9. Direct Contributions

    You can directly fund the mission of the Birge Lab with contributions through the Rutgers Foundation. Donations are tax deductible. 100% of any donated funding is used support primary research.

The marathon is a metaphor for tackling cancer, one step at a time.

I have completed the following New York City marathons: 1993, 1995 (3:33 PR), 1996, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015
