University of Illinois researchers are taking an unusual tack at getting funds to do research. They have created a crowdfunding account to pay for testing kits. They plan to investigate hepatitis c in homeless people in central Illinois.
UIS professors Kanwal Alvarez and Josiah Alamu need to raise at least $500 and hope to get $2,000.
