The Louis-Jeantet Foundation

Established in Geneva, the Louis-Jeantet Foundation seeks to further the cause of medicine. It funds European biomedical research, both in its fundamental and clinical aspects.  It encourages the continuation of innovative projects at all stages in a researcher’s career. A dynamic role – hence its originality.

The Foundation devotes some CHF4m per year to promoting biomedical research, an investment divided equally between European research projects and local projects in association with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva.

Thanks to its remarkable contribution to biomedical science and to the level of financial support it is able to provide, the Louis-Jeantet Foundation is one of the most important European foundations in its field.

The Louis-Jeantet Foundation is a member of the Association de Genève des Fondations Académiques AGFA and of the Association of Swiss Grantmaking Foundations SwissFoundations.
