In 2002, visionary leaders in science, business and government united to establish Arizona as a new frontier in the biotechnology industry. From their philanthropy, networking and advocacy, TGen - the Translational Genomics Research Institute - was born.

Through TGen Ambassadors, we look to a new generation of innovators to take up the mantle of leadership and propel that vision forward. An invitation-only network of working professionals and emerging leaders, TGen Ambassadors make an annual, individual gift of $1,000, but their commitment goes beyond philanthropy to advocacy within their networks and beyond.
