The Progeria Research Foundation, Inc.

The mission of The Progeria Research Foundation is to discover treatments and the cure for Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome and its aging-related disorders, including heart disease. Tax ID 04-3460220


In just 16 years, since we founded PRF and there were no resources for these children, we have gone from gene finding to the first clinical trials in Progeria, to a treatment. We are hailed as a model for disease-research organizations and a prime example of a successful translational research organization, moving from the lab to treatments at a pace virtually unheard of in the scientific community. And while helping this handful of children, the connection of Progeria to common heart disease and aging has tremendous implications for us all.

Together, we WILL find the cure!
