The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) is the only public charity solely dedicated to rapidly accelerating the discovery and development of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and cognitive aging.
ADDF raises and awards funds to academic and biotechnology scientists conducting drug discovery research in this field.
ADDF uses a venture philanthropy model to bridge the worldwide funding gap between basic research and later-stage development, using any return on investment to support new research.
Since its inception, our organization has identified and participated in some of the most groundbreaking scientific programs in Alzheimer’s research currently in progress.
