Advancing Breakthrough Medical Research

Millions around the globe face devastating diseases and debilitating injuries without access to effective treatments—if such treatments even exist. 

The Michelson Medical Research Foundation accelerates solutions to global health challenges by fostering high-risk, high-reward approaches that disrupt the status quo to make innovative ideas a reality. Through convergent collaboration among engineers, scientists, and physicians, the foundation helps rapidly move bold concepts and technologies from the laboratory into clinics and communities around the world. The aim is to help those who are suffering and promote health equity for all.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscores the need to invest in immunotherapy and other breakthrough fields that will transform healthcare as we know it. Cultivating pioneering partnerships and supporting new generations of researchers who are fearless in the pursuit of discovery is at the heart of the Michelson Medical Research Foundation.
