The Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Medical Research Foundation
AMRF is dedicated to eliminating disease by revolutionizing how medical research is resourced and conducted. We believe in removing the traditional barriers to scientific exploration by championing a disease-agnostic, collaborative, creative approach to medical research.
The AMRF funding model reverses the traditional competitive application approach by identifying investigators in key fields and inviting them to develop collaborative research projects in a defined area of need. Investigators review fellow researchers’ proposals, which facilitates deeply informed feedback while keeping teams fully apprised of one another’s ongoing work.
With our streamlined grant process, investigators can receive funding and begin work within 3-4 months, speeding time to discovery and development of new treatments. AMRF administrative support includes teleconferencing technology and bioinformatics, enabling investigators to focus on discovery rather than logistics.
