“For years I worked closely with many researchers at MIT and other institutions on cancer, neuroimaging, and medical devices. We believe in the critical importance of the work the MDI Biological Laboratory is undertaking. Naming MDI Biological Laboratory in our wills is our simple way of ensuring that our support will still be there even when we are not.” – Gary and Giva Frashier
