The Clinatec Foundation has set the ambitious fundraising target of €30 million by 2018 to pay for Clinatec’s biomedical research programs in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, motor handicaps, and cancer. And the approach is innovative: Clinatec is appealing to businesses, foundations, and individuals to donate by June 30 of this year to qualify for matching funds from the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, already a Clinatec supporter. If the €5 million matching-fund commitment is reached, Clinatec will have raised a total of €10 million through this unique program, which kicked off at the end of February. The campaign committee is chaired by Alain Mérieux.
