As the fight against COVID-19 continues, we are proud that The Lundquist Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center has been among the first and foremost to respond to the pandemic. Since March 2020, The Lundquist Institute has led or participated in more than 10 COVID-19 clinical studies. The results of this research have saved lives on a local, national, and global scale.

In addition to our important work on the front-lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, your contribution today will support ongoing life-saving research, including:

  • More effective ways to screen for heart disease
  • Breakthroughs in HIV/AIDS treatments
  • The development of vaccines for hospital acquired infections
  • Innovative treatments for sickle cell disease
  • Therapies to combat orphan diseases such as “childhood Alzheimer’s” (Sanfilippo Syndrome) and Mucopolysaccharidosis
  • Empowering the next generation of leading scientists and innovators

While our discoveries benefit tens of millions of individuals worldwide, the Institute's target population consists primarily of the ethnically diverse low-income children and adults, numbering approximately two million people, served by the county hospital, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
