About Us

he Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) is an independent non-profit biomedical research organization located in Torrance, California. If you have had your cholesterol tested, gotten a heart scan, been treated by paramedics, had your newborn tested for thyroid deficiency, or undergone surgery to repair an artery, you have benefitted from research conducted here at LA BioMed. Our discoveries have prevented blindness in newborns, enabled premature infants with fragile lungs to breathe, and allowed children with hereditary diseases to grow up healthy and strong.

Our South Los Angeles Health Projects (SLAHP) unit, which was founded in 1973, provides counseling, education and support in the areas of nutrition, breastfeeding, parenting and immunization; checks for nutritious foods, and referrals to community and medical resources for pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children up to age five. They serve more than 80,000 participants each year, the vast majority of whom are Latino or African-American.

Our Options for Recovery unit, which began in 1990 during the height of the cocaine epidemic, provides and coordinates comprehensive, centralized services for alcohol and drug abusing women and their children.
