 Ellison Medical Foundation

Supports basic biomedical research with a current focus om understanding how humans and other organisms age and defining the biological mechanisms that prevent age-related diseases and disabilities.

The Foundation aims to stimulate new, creative research approaches that might not be funded by traditional sources or that might have been neglected by existing research programs.

A Senior Scholar Award designed to support established investigators working in US institutions awards up to $150,000 in direct costs over a four-year period to conduct research in the basic biological sciences relevant to understanding lifespan development processes and age-related diseases and disabilities.

 Goldman Philanthropic Partnerships

A private operating foundation created in 1988 to establish a new philanthropic business model to accelerate the way cures are discovered, Goldman Philanthropic Partnerships has created innovative research funding between donors, researchers, and medical institutions. They also seek out, validate, and co-fund innovative research that accelerates the search for cures for a range of catastrophic diseases.

Groundbreaking research is explored in all disciplines of medicine and most interested in intermediate-length studies (12-36 months. The Partnerships are willing to fund projects of any cost, and tend to fund young, talented researchers in all disciplines with ground-breaking ideas, although seasoned researchers looking to expand into new areas are also funded.

The Partnerships looks to fund research that will lead to a cure, regardless of the disease, but there is a strong interest in multiple myeloma and other hematological diseases. They also look for research that can translate from one disease to another and maintains a strong interest in children and young adults, although research is funded in any patient population where they believe there is a high likelihood of return on disease prevention, treatment, or cure.
