Innovation is a critical bridge in translating scientific discoveries into products and solutions that improve the health of people and the environment and in creating new companies that contribute to increased growth and economic activity. The Foundation is in a unique position to foster innovation and translational research by combining commercial, grant-awarding and societal purposes. The broad range of grant-awarding activities the Foundation supports puts it at the nexus of many key academic research, clinical care and industrial networks, making it a natural facilitator of the interdisciplinary dialogue and activity that spurs innovation.

The Foundation’s activities will focus on:

  • Early innovation
  • Accelerating innovation more broadly
  • A start-up incubation and commercialization ecosystem
