“Foundation Relations has been a full partner in our research growth at ND-ECI. They have been constantly on the look-out for opportunities and relationships that could forward our research goals. Moreover, the staff at Foundation Relations has helped us launch research that would otherwise not have been possible through traditional funding sources.”
