Our values

Science of the people, for the people.

Our mission – Advancement of Science

Maecenium is a Houston non-profit organization 501(c)3 dedicated to advancing scientific research. Our mission is to support and promote the pursuit of knowledge and innovation in various fields of natural and social science, including but not limited to biology, personalized medicine, chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering, and history. We believe that scientific research plays a crucial role in solving complex problems, improving lives, and shaping the future of humanity.

Bringing People Together, Maecenas and Scientists

At Maecenium, we understand that scientific research is a complex and challenging process. It requires not only brilliant ideas but also resources, funding, and a supportive environment. That’s why we work tirelessly to provide scientists and researchers with the support they need to turn their ideas into reality.

Through our various initiatives and programs, we strive to create an environment that fosters innovation and collaboration between Scientists and Maecenas.
