Watch the video to learn more about our foundation, a vision of Linda Tannenbaum and Dr. Andreas Kogelnik. Our mission is to fund and initiate collaborative and groundbreaking research into complex, chronic diseases so that patients will be able to live life more fully.

Led by our esteemed ME / CFS Scientific Advisory Board, we’re now focused on the End ME / CFS Project that is designed to find biomarkers and effective treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME / CFS). These findings should also provide insights into similar illnesses. Learn about our current study.
