Roughly once every minute in the United States this year, a person will die from cancer.
What would you do if a cure could be found in the soil from your backyard?
The key to the next life-saving biomedical discovery might be living right below your feet. Dozens of fungi can occupy a single handful of soil and many of them are adept at making new compounds called natural products. These remarkable molecules hold tremendous promise for treating human diseases.
It only takes a few minutes to help by collecting a scoop of soil.
Established in 2010 as the first operation of its kind, the Citizen Science Soil Collection Program is asking you for your dirt. You can play a vital role in this important research.
Please note: Collection kits may take up to 7 – 14 business days to be received. If you have questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to requesting an additional kit.
