Focused Ultrasound Foundation

Organization Overview

The Focused Ultrasound Foundation is a medical technology research, education and advocacy organization created to improve the lives of millions of people with serious medical disorders by accelerating the development and adoption of focused ultrasound. The Foundation works to clear the path to global adoption by coordinating and funding research and educational activities, fostering collaboration among stakeholders, and building awareness of the technology among patients and professionals. The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that focused ultrasound finds its place as a mainstream therapy for a range of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors and epilepsy as well as uterine fibroids, cancer and other life-threatening conditions within years, not decades. Since its establishment in 2006, the Foundation has become the largest non-governmental source of funding for focused ultrasound research.
