Setting the Tone for Medical Research Organizations in the 21st Century

The Michelson Medical Research Foundation supports medical research organizations in developing timely breakthroughs in medicine and biomedical technology.

Our funding has contributed to the fight against infectious diseases, new surgical technologies, the fight against dementia, and much more.

Creating Opportunities for Medical Research Organizations

Bringing together funding, talent, and research infrastructure to methodically tackle clearly identified problems.

The Los Angeles region possesses one of the world’s highest concentrations of scientific excellence, entrepreneurial success, and medical expertise, yet has only begun to tap into its potential as a world leader in biomedical research. Michelson Medical is changing that by helping medical research organizations bridge the gap between researchers, policymakers, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs.

As traditional funding sources dry up and development costs rise, medical innovation is increasingly dependent on philanthropy and the recognition that the private sector has a decisive role to play in solving the problems of our time. Michelson Medical, under the leadership of Dr. Gary Michelson and his wife Alya Michelson, is spearheading a new era of visionary yet methodical philanthropic giving.

Michelson Prize & Grants

A $75 million challenge to control the pet population more humanely and effectively by developing a nonsurgical sterilization method for dogs and cats.

Michelson Medical supports medical research organizations in the crucial work of developing better ways to control the pet population and prevent over a million unwanted animals from being euthanized each year.

The Michelson Prize & Grants for Human Immunology & Vaccine Research are available to anyone doing work in this area. The grants are especially focused on creating opportunities for young researchers who have new perspectives to offer, and just need someone to give them the chance to put their skills to work. This is in keeping with Dr. Gary Michelson’s philosophy of innovation through developing a new generation of talent to solve today’s intractable problems.

Visit the Michelson Prize & Grants website.

USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience

Cultivating an interdisciplinary research environment for timely medical research and development initiatives.

By bringing together scientists and engineers from multiple disciplines and tapping into the University of Southern California’s tradition of research excellence, the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience is a major force multiplier in biomedical innovation. The USC Center seeds medical research organizations with the perspectives and experience needed to tackle today’s most pressing medical challenges from all angles.

Opened in 2017, the USC Michelson Center is already helping to secure Los Angeles as one of the world hotspots for biomedical research.

Our Founders: Dr. Gary Michelson & Alya Michelson

Promoting innovation and development in medicine, intellectual property, and animal welfare through targeted, ambitious philanthropy.

The Michelson Medical Research Foundation’s support of worthy medical research organizations would not be possible without the Michelsons.

Dr. Gary Michelson is a retired orthopedic surgeon and prolific inventor who has earned nearly a thousand patents worldwide for his creation of groundbreaking tools for less invasive spinal surgeries and better patient outcomes. He is also a passionate animal lover who has supported animal welfare all his life.

Alya Michelson is a musician, singer, and songwriter, as well as a retired journalist. Alya shares the same passion and sense of responsibility for improving the world.
