Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we are able to provide initial funding for innovative scientific research to discover the causes of, improve treatments for, and find cures for Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
We are proud to have awarded more than 206 million1 dollars to fund ground-breaking research to help eradicate these diseases of mind and sight. Most of the researchers use the awarded funds to demonstrate key findings that lead to later interest and additional support from industrial or governmental funding agencies.
