Eric Dudl Scholarship Fund

Eric Preston Dudl


The Eric Dudl Scholarship Fund was established at Sanford Burnham Prebys to remember a promising young postdoc at the Institute whose life was tragically cut short at the age of 33 years old. He was stricken by cancer, the very disease he dedicated himself to researching. He cherished the Institute so dearly that he left his life's savings to help other postdocs continue the work he loved.

The Rocket Fund

John Taylor "Rocket" Williams IV

The Rocket Fund supports the heroic battle against heartbreaking rare and neglected children’s diseases. Named after John Taylor “Rocket” Williams IV who suffered from a rare condition known as Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG), Rocket’s family and friends generously started The Rocket Fund in 2007.  Sadly, Rocket passed away in November 2008. His spirit lives on as SBP works hard to understand devastating childhood diseases.
