About Our Organization

The Biomedical Molecular Research Foundation is an independent nonprofit foundation dedicated to the funding of biomedical research in very important human health-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. The foundation is focused on advancing genetic, genomic and transcriptomic research as well as advancing translational medicine. One of our major goals is to see biomedical pre-clinical discoveries actually become routine practice at the bedside to significantly enhance patient care. We have a very strong desire to further medical/scientific investigation and patient care for those persons suffering from disease.  We are in the process of applying to become recognized by the federal government as a 501(c)(3) organization for tax purposes.
