Progress Toward Therapies
We fund the basic research that drives new ideas and we fund projects that are translating that research into therapies. Our projects focusing on specific disease therapies have the end goal of generating proof of concept for their therapeutic approach, finding a candidate drug or cell type to be developed into a therapy or filing an investigation new drug (IND) application with the Food and Drug Administration to begin clinical trials.
