Building on a legacy of innovation that spans more than half a century, Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is one of the country's leading nonprofit biomedical research institutes.
LA BioMed is committed to finding practical, inexpensive solutions to real-world health problems. Our organization has been serving the citizens of Los Angeles for over 60 years with pioneering and innovative research that led to countless diagnostics, devices and therapies.
It is often said that “someday they will find a way.” When it comes to discovery science that drives medical breakthroughs, “they” are here at LA BioMed and “someday” is today.
Our ability to impact and improve global health through local discoveries is only proportional to the generosity of others. We thank you for support and we ask that you continue to help us make ‘someday’ happen today.
Where there is a tomorrow...
While no one can be certain of what tomorrow brings, most of us have dreams and plans for the future – especially for our children.
If you have had your cholesterol tested, gotten a heart scan, been treated by paramedics, had your newborn tested for thyroid deficiency, or undergone surgery to repair an artery, you have benefitted from research conducted at LA BioMed.
"It is quite a responsibility to find the right place to donate, and finding LA BioMed was a blessing. We're confident of the ability and quality of the people and feel fortunate to be a small part of supporting their work ... the research is relevant and timely."
