Mission Statement

LAM Treatment Alliance, Inc. is dedicated to finding a treatment for Lymphangioleiomyomatosis or LAM (a rare, incurable fatal disease that can teach us about more common diseases) in the fastest time possible by supporting an aggressively funded high-impact research strategy.

Description

We pursue our mission by functioning as a convener, think tank and funder of scientists who already work on this disease and those who are leaders in relevant fields. Our grants program, Harvard Medical School-based Seminar Series and bi-annual Summits facilitate ongoing recruitment, excellence and collaboration among researchers working on different aspects of the disease and potential therapies. Our focus is on fundraising and building Foundation infrastructure, capacity, outreach and alliances to other strategic partners in support of our core mission. Our work has received press coverage in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and The Charlie Rose Show on PBS.
