The fund is an independent private foundation dedicated to advancing the medical sciences by supporting research and other scientific and educational activities. Within this broad mission the Fund has two primary goals: 1) To help scientists early in their careers develop as independent investigators and 2) To advance fields in the basic biomedical sciences that are undervalued or in need of particular encouragement. The fund makes grants primarily to degree-granting institutions on behalf of individual researchers, who must be nominated by their institutions.
