The Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center was established in 1991 to focus on the basic science of AIDS and HIV in a research environment that fosters the highest scientific creativity. ADARC is the world's largest independent research center devoted solely to HIV/AIDS Research. We are fully committed to our mission to find solutions that will ultimately end the AIDS pandemic. We have adopted a multidisciplinary approach - virology, immunology, molecular biology, and clinical medicine - to pursue a number of projects in AIDS research. In addition to basic research, ADARC also runs a Clinical Program that translates research into Clinical Trials that can affect millions of people living with HIV.
The American Heart Association is the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
To improve the lives of all Americans, we provide public health education in a variety of ways. We're the nation's leader in CPR education training. We help people understand the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. We provide science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals to help them provide quality care to their patients. We educate lawmakers, policymakers and the public as we advocate for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities. We have funded more than $3.8 billion in heart disease and stroke research, more than any organization outside the federal government.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, works to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $600 million to support research at medical institutions across the globe conducting the most advanced and promising breast cancer research that will help lead to prevention and a cure.
The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation was created in 1971 by a small group of parents of children with diabetes - parents committed to finding a cure for this devastating disease. Driven by hope and fueled by the need to end their children's suffering, they banded together to support a promising research program at the University of Miami solely aimed at curing those living with diabetes. From providing the vital seed funding necessary to pursue innovative ideas, to bringing promising discoveries to patients now living with diabetes, the Foundation is a key to enabling the Diabetes Research Institute scientists to accelerate research.

The Alliance for Lupus research is dedicated to finding a cure for lupus. We believe in doing one thing, and doing it well. Founded in 1999, our sole mission is to prevent, treat and cure lupus through medical research. The Alliance applies a strategic business approach to funding research. In 2000 and 2001 we asked scientists to submit proposals to identify targets for new therapies in lupus. These proposals needed to be ideas that would lead to the development of new drugs or biologic agents to treat lupus within two years. And because we want to fund the best research, wherever that may be, we accepted applications from all over the world, and from industry, as well as academia.
Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, and the need for early detection and prompt, effective treatment. It is the only international organization devoted solely to combating the world's most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels. More than a million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year. The Foundation's mission is to decrease the incidence of the disease by means of public and professional education, medical training, and research.
Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution that provides pediatric health care and helps our patients more than 528,000 times each year in a setting designed just for their needs.

Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. The charity, which is the national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure, raises money for direct private funding of research and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer. The organization is leading the way to increase the survival rate for the disease through a bold initiative-The Vision of Progress: Double the Pancreatic Cancer Survival Rate by 2020. We will achieve this goal by intensifying our efforts to heighten awareness, raise funds for comprehensive private research and advocate for more federal research funding to advance early diagnostics and better treatments.
