About Us

Founded in 1955, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund is an independent private foundation dedicated to advancing the biomedical sciences by supporting research and other scientific and educational activities.


Within this broad mission, BWF seeks to accomplish two primary goals—to help scientists early in their careers develop as independent investigators, and to advance fields in the biomedical sciences that are undervalued or in need of particular encouragement.


BWF’s primary approach is to target individual researchers at degree-granting institutions in the United States and Canada, providing financial support through our competitive, peer-reviewed award programs. In complement to our support of academic research, we also make grants to nonprofit organizations whose missions improve the overall environment for scientific activities and careers.
