The Medical Foundation division works with private individuals, bank trusts, and family foundations to design customized grant programs that accelerate medical discoveries. Each year, internationally recognized investigators and physician scientists from across the United States and Europe serve on our eleven Scientific Review Committees. Reviewers provide critical and unbiased evaluations of all applications and research progress reports. Each year, the Medical Foundation’s clients support more than 160 investigators in basic biomedical, translational and clinical research and award close to $16 million. Health Resources in Action (HRiA), the parent organization of The Medical Foundation division, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing public health and medical research.
