Who We Are
“The PA Research Foundation funds world class research into deadly and debilitating disease.
Since 1984 it has invested more than 20 million dollars into cutting edge research and equipment. This has made the PA campus one of the most energetic research precincts in the nation.
With the opening of the Translational Research Institute up to 1300 researchers call PA home. Together, these researchers will investigate disease prevention, early detection, treatment and cures.
It is time to plan for the future, PA funded discoveries will grow medical research well beyond our lifetime.
Be part of the next great breakthrough of medical research, you could save the life of someone you know and love
See the light, give the gift that keeps on giving. The power is in your hands”
