Know the Signs, Fight for Victory

Research Provides Hope for the Future

We work tirelessly to advance research that saves lives and dramatically enhances the quality of life for people living with Marfan syndrome and related conditions.

The research that we’ve supported has helped reduce life-threatening problems from these conditions, identified treatments that have improved the quality of life, and helped people to live a long life with Marfan syndrome and related conditions. We continue to support this research because we know there are still people struggling on their medical journey.

Our Research Impact

Each year, The Marfan Foundation pursues the most innovative research by providing support through our research grant program. Through our grant program and other commitments, we funded $1.4 million in research in the past year.
