The mission of The POLG Foundation is to support and accelerate research to find effective treatments and a cure for PolG mitochondrial disorders.
The POLG Foundation story starts, as is often the case, with the journey of one family and more particularly, one young man, Frederik.
What is PolG
Once considered rare, mitochondrial disease is now believed to affect 1 in 5000 people, rendering it the second most commonly diagnosed, serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis.
The Foundation intends to become a leading funder of basic, translational, and clinical PolG research. Working with the global scientific community, we will help develop critical tools and make our findings widely available.
