    • Thank you, Mr. Mekasha, for writing me. In order for me to give you some leads as to funding for your research–I would need to know much more about your research–such as who are you–your background/credentials, etc.? What kind of research do you do, or plan to do? Where? When and for how long? Why is this research needed? How will this research be done? How much do you expect this to cost and what is the economic value of the research? Any additional information would be helpful. You are welcome to email with more details and then perhaps I may be able to direct you to some potential funding sources.

      Sincerely, Kelly N Patterson
