Who We Serve
Altum’s cloud-based software is used by scientific grant makers investing in chemistry, biomedical, general science, agriculture, energy, conservation and the environment, and innumerable other research areas.
It’s been such an easy transition to ProposalCentral. It’s going well for two reasons: The solution is user-friendly and the Altum customer service has been fabulous.
Grant makers that support biomedical research provide awards and scholarships to scientists who study human physiology, genetics, genomics, molecular biology, medicine, or other disciplines that align with the treatment or understanding of disease. This focus area represents the largest concentration of funders on the Altum platform. Some of the funders focused on biomedical research on the Altum platform include The American Cancer Society, The American Heart Association, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Stand Up 2 Cancer, Parkinson’s Foundation, and The Stem Cell Network (Canada).
Chemistry involves the study of the structure, composition, and properties of matter. Funders that make research grants in chemistry are driven to understand the fundamental behavior of matter in terms of its properties and behavior and to advance the practical application of chemistry for the betterment of all mankind. The Welch Foundation is among the various grant makers on Altum that focus on chemistry.
Agriculture research is aimed at improving the quantity and quality of crops by their genetic improvement, irrigation, better plant protection, storage methods, farm mechanization, and better management of resources. Grant makers that support agriculture research invest in efforts that produce results that benefit farmers, consumers, and the environment. The U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council, California Walnut Commission, and the Peanut Institute Foundation are some of the scientific grant makers using Altum to advance agriculture research.
The natural sciences are the sciences that deals with the objects, phenomena, or laws of nature and the physical world. Natural sciences form the basis for applied science subjects and focus on the study of the universe and the rules of nature. There are five branches of natural science: Biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, and astronomy. The Human Frontier Science Program is one of the funders on Altum that focus on natural sciences – specifically on understanding the complex mechanisms of living organisms.
Environmental science and marine science research are interdisciplinary academic fields that draw on geology, biology, ecology, chemistry, engineering, and physics to study environmental challenges and human impacts on the earth and the oceans. Funders make investments in scientists who study both the biological and social factors that impact ecological systems and identify breakthroughs to support environmental conservation efforts. Fondation Bertarelli and the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA) are two of the funders on Altum focused on environmental research, specifically marine science.
Altum is proud to work with excellent clients and a group of wonderful partners. It’s our priviledge to help organizations achieve their missions so that they can make an even larger positive impact on the world.
