Benefits of Sponsorship

The crystallography tutorial on this web site is one of the most prominent and successful free web tutorials in macromolecular crystallography, and is frequently used in academic course work, and in NSF, ACA and other workshops around the globe. Over 500,000 users so far have contributed to its popularity, and many of these students have moved on and become decision makers with substantial influence and buying power for crystallographic equipment and software.  

The site is fully indexed by the major search engines, and on average 4000 hits per day and 3000 targeted visits per month provide substantial visibility. Any proceeds from sponsorship are directly invested into improvements of the educational web site. We hire graduate students for web design, content improvement, and programming of interactive web exercises. You investments is used to improve content and presentation of the educational parts of this popular web site, increasing your business exposure and interest of future decision makers in your products.

The active engagement of students in the material and direct links to your products have a significantly increased impact on retention and increased long-term impact over any mass mailings of commercial competitors.
