The Science Is the Care

At Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute, our scientists partner with physicians and clinical investigators every day to understand the biology that drives disease and to develop new preventions and treatments for a range of illnesses like heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, digestive diseases, and many others.

Our more than 1,800 physicians, scientists, and engineers share a common goal—translating laboratory discoveries into exceptional patient care. To achieve this goal, the Lerner Research Institute depends on your support to discover tomorrow’s cures. Every gift, no matter the amount, helps us to advance our mission.

As federal funding for research continues to decrease, our researchers work tirelessly to find alternative sources of funding to support their work. That’s where philanthropy can make a difference—it can be the spark that transforms an idea in a researcher’s mind into the next big medical breakthrough.
