The Focused Ultrasound Foundation was created in 2006 to improve the lives of millions of people with serious medical disorders by accelerating the development and adoption of focused ultrasound.
Focused ultrasound is an early-stage, non-invasive therapeutic technology that could transform the treatment of many medical disorders. Every day without it translates into unnecessary death, disability, and suffering for countless individuals.
The Focused Ultrasound Foundation is working to provide patients with this non-invasive, life-changing treatment option in the shortest time possible.
Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Foundation is a tax-exempt, high-performance, entrepreneurial service organization with a global reach. We seek to leverage our trusted third party position through contributing financial and human resources to foster collaboration, to build knowledge and to streamline the process and overcome barriers.
The Foundation is on the leading edge of the venture philanthropy and social entrepreneurship movements and has become a model of how donor funding can be used to bridge the gap between laboratory research and widespread patient treatment.
In 2018, the Foundation was recognized as one of America’s 10 Best Medical Research Organizations by Charity Navigator.
