Endometriosis Foundation of America:
Our Commitment to Research


Advancing endometriosis research is one of EndoFound's primary goals. To fulfil this commitment, we provide grant awards through our annual grant cycle. Each year, we receive compelling proposals from various institutions across the United States and internationally. Topics range from the social impact of endometriosis to the cellular and molecular make-up of the disease. This year, we received over 40 applications, the highest volume ever received in EndoFound's history. We are pleased to announce the following awardee institutions:

  • Curtin University (Australia)
  • Feinstein Institute for Medical Research
  • Hudson Institute of Medical Research
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • Michigan State University
  • Mayo Clinic
  • Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
  • Queen's University (Canada)
  • Yale School of Medicine

There are an estimated 200 million endometriosis patients worldwide, and each endo story is as unique as a fingerprint. What's your story? Below, a few participants bravely stand in their truth, in hopes of forever squashing the silence surrounding endo.

Endometriosis is the mysterious health disease that affects one in 10 women. It is a condition in which tissue, similar to the lining of the uterus, grows in other areas of the body (Ruggeri, 2015.) There is no cure. There is no specific known reason of why it develops. It just is.
