Medical Research

The Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation currently funds research in two major areas of medical need: Alzheimer’s Disease and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS).

The Alzheimer’s research is conducted at the Taub Institute for Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain at Columbia University.

Our MDS research is administered by The Medical Foundation, a division of Health Resources in Action. The program is designed to support high-impact, innovative translational research to understand the underlying causes of MDS and to advance its treatment and prevention.


No additional medical research programs are planned and solicitations of interest are not being sought.
