DynaMiTE Research Lab at WPI


Raised: $2,225

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

We are the DynaMiTE (Dynamic Microenvironment Tissue Engineering) Lab at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), and we are joining the fight against pancreatic cancer! Our research group, lead by Principal Investigator Dr. Catherine F. Whittington, is currently funded by the Pancreatic Cancer Action (PanCAN) Network through a 2021 Career Development Award (copy and pastes links below). We are excited about the work that we are doing and want to do what we can to give back to this organization. 

If you are able to support PanCAN and Purple Stride through a financial gift, please do so. Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

You can also join our team to help us meet (and hopefully surpass) our fundraising goal! Finally, you can always check out the resources that PanCAN has on their site to education yourself and others about this disease. Thank you!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
