ABOUT OUR RESEARCH

The Endometriosis Foundation of America is committed to funding landmark endometriosis research.
We support a wide range of innovative research studies that aim to develop better strategies in diagnosing and treating endometriosis. These research studies encompass a range of topics, from the social impact of the disease to the scientific.

Each year, EndoFound handpicks projects that utilize innovative methodologies, detail research objectives that aim to advance the scientific community’s understanding of the disease, and from researchers who show a strong track record of producing impactful studies that influence the clinical care and overall health outcomes of endometriosis patients.

Our mission is to one day discover a cure for endometriosis, and to forever better the lives of millions of women worldwide.

You can help us on this journey by donating now, including a one-time gift, monthly gift or an employer-matched gift, and your support will go towards funding this crucial research.
