Our Genesis

AMRF’s genesis was the answer to one core question:

Why do we not have the medicines we need? We have a wealth of scientific knowledge. Our researchers are exceptionally gifted, highly skilled and intensely dedicated. We are living in a transformative age of breathtaking technological advancement. Yet we still lack life-saving treatments for countless diseases.

Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson established AMRF in 2006 to better understand, address and fill that void.

The Solution: Create the Right Process

Just as Sheldon Adelson’s entrepreneurship transformed the business of Las Vegas, the Adelsons focused on revolutionizing scientific discovery and inspiring others to follow suit. The Adelsons quickly ascertained one critical factor to accelerating the pace of scientific discovery: Process. They recognized that reimagining the processes of research could influence scientific progress in ways that were previously unimaginable – and they decided to do something about it. The Adelsons harnessed the power of process to enhance scientific discovery and together with Dr. Dobkin developed the AMRF model.
