The Hereditary Disease Foundation (HDF) aims to cure genetic illness by supporting basic biomedical research. The Foundation uses a variety of strategies – workshops, grants, fellowships, and targeted research contracts – to solve the mysteries of genetic disease and develop new treatments and cures. HDF has spent over $60,000,000 to support pioneering research in genetics, gene therapy, molecular and cell biology, cell survival and death, animal models, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology and other areas relevant to the understanding of inherited diseases. HDF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
