University of Washington surgeon using crowdfunding to fund research

Coming from King5, Dr. Mike Mulligan is a transplant surgeon looking to crowdfund research on medical crowdfunding platform Consano:

Mulligan is asking the public directly for money, using a new website Consano.org. It describes Mulligan’s research project and tells you how much he’s trying to raise. A donation is just a click away. There is no Consanominimum and no overhead except for the cost of using PayPal.

“This is a direct connection that people can latch onto,” said Mulligan.

Mulligan’s project will be on the website for two months. There are also other projects on the site, all chosen by the team behind Consano. Researchers have to provide regular updates on their progress and how they are spending donors’ money. But mulligan says don’t worry about him.

Mulligan is a cardio – thoracic surgeon at the University of Washington where he performs 50 Lung transplants each year.
