The Angiogenesis Foundation

"Founded in 1994, the Angiogenesis Foundation is the world’s first 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to conquering disease using a new approach based on angiogenesis, the growth of new capillary blood vessels in the body. We have identified angiogenesis as the “common denominator” in society’s most feared diseases. Our focus on this underlying process of many different diseases makes our approach as a medical organization unique. The Foundation is the recognized, expert voice and champion of this new field of medicine."

"The Angiogenesis Foundation takes a unique approach to achieving our mission to help people lead longer, better, and healthier lives. First, we have the expertise and invest the time and resources to deeply understand the complex needs of our multiple stakeholders, patients, doctors, scientists, industry, regulators, payors, policymakers, the financial community. We seek the input of our advisors, external scientific and medical experts, educators, and our networks of physicians, and patient advocates. We then design programs that best align these interests in ways that can measurably help us meet our mission to help improve patients lives through the angiogenesis field. Our program philosophy is that patients can achieve increasingly better outcomes when the needs of different groups involved in both developing and delivering treatment are met. Through this process, we fund programs that achieve specific well-defined goals."
