Posted: May 26th, 2015 by Kenneth D. Hertel

There are 86,192 foundations in the United States holding $715 billion in assets and they distributed a record $52 billion in 2012. A good portion of this funding was directed to biomedical research and healthcare.  In FY15 to date, 27 Geisel/Dartmouth Hitchcock researchers have been awarded a total of $10,333,505 in foundation grants.  These grants represent basic, clinical, and translational science; curriculum development; global health; and scholarships.  Awards are often segmented for young, mid-career, and established investigators, and a subset of these grants are intended to prepare researchers for federal funding.  SYNERGY and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center will be hosting a seminar to review medical research foundations and summarize them according to their areas of funding and their types of awards.
