About The John Douglas French Alzheimer's Foundation
Founded in 1983, the mission of The John Douglas French Alzheimer's Foundation (www.jdfaf.org) is to accelerate finding a cure, or a way to delay the onset and advancement of Alzheimer’s disease, by funding innovative research in new areas of discovery.
Our non-profit, charitable foundation fills a unique—and highly valuable niche—by providing funding for innovative research projects that othe...rwise might not be funded through pharmaceutical or governmental grants. These vital projects enable scientists to gain greater knowledge and understanding of the workings of the disease—at its most fundamental level—the essential first step to ultimately discovering a cure.
