Building on a legacy of innovation that spans more than half a century, Los Angeles
Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is one of
the country's leading nonprofit biomedical research institutes.
LA BioMed is committed to finding practical, inexpensive solutions to real-world health
problems. Our organization has been serving the citizens of Los Angeles for over 60
years with pioneering and innovative research that led to countless diagnostics, devices
and therapies.
It is often said that “someday they will find a way.” When it comes
to discovery science that drives medical breakthroughs, “they” are
here at LA BioMed and “someday” is today.
Our ability to impact and improve global health through local discoveries
is only proportional to the generosity of others. We thank you for support
and we ask that you continue to help us make ‘someday’ happen today.
