Private foundations speed advances that benefit people by funding research at all stages, from initial discovery through clinical trials. Landmark scientific achievements often begin as high-risk pilot projects, and foundation support of these endeavors can be pivotal in their ultimate success. Foundation support also leverages scientific knowledge, promoting the translation of basic investigations out of the laboratory and into the clinic.
