About Us

The mission of Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation is to support the work of LSU’s Pennington Biomedical Research Center, which aims to discover the triggers of chronic diseases through innovative research that improves human health.

Over the last 30 years, Pennington Biomedical’s world-renowned scientists have made remarkable discoveries that have improved the way Americans exercise, eat, age and think about obesity, diabetes, dementia and other chronic diseases.

Pennington Biomedical researchers have been involved in the development of every obesity medication on the market today and many diabetes medications. Pennington Biomedical’s research helped shape the DASH Diet, consistently ranked the No. 1 diet in America by U.S. News & World Report. And, Pennington Biomedical’s science is helping the U.S. military and their families stay healthy.

But, many questions remain about the triggers and treatment of these devastating illnesses.

Gifts from individuals, foundations and businesses accelerate the exploration of new ideas, innovative techniques and powerful technologies.
