Albert Folch is grateful for generous funding from the federal agencies NSF (Program: BES), NIH (centers: NCRR, NIBIB, NINDS, and NIDOCD), and NASA. The Folch lab has also received small funding in the past from the Whitaker Foundation, the Washington Technology Center, and Micronics, Inc.

Aside from these sources of funding, lab members have received fellowships from a variety of sources, including UW's Nanotechnology Center (Anna Tourovskaia, Tom Keenan, Chihchen Chen, Fettah Kosar, and Aileen Wu), Department of Defense (Jackie Rettig), NIH's "Life at the Microscale" Training Grant (Greg Boggy), and NIH's UW Oral Biology Training Grant (Dr. Xavier Figueroa-Masot).
