The mission of The POLG Foundation is to support and accelerate research to find effective treatments and a cure for PolG mitochondrial disorders.
A Single Cure Leads to Many
PolG disorders may be rare, but they involve one of the most critical cell structures in the human body, and research impacts a wide range of illnesses, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Diabetes and some cancers, for which we still have no cures.
This nonprofit entity is developing a visionary and innovative approach to treat and cure PolG mitochondrial diseases. The Foundation aims to be a leading funder of basic, translational and clinical PolG research. Working with the global scientific community, we are investing in developing critical tools. We continue to make our findings available to mitochondrial scientists, clinicians and patients worldwide.
The PolG Foundation aims to be a conduit for scientific collaboration by connecting academic research, drug discovery and clinical development together.Learn More
