Welcome

Innovative Research and Therapies Foundation (IRTF) combines entrepreneurial savvy and research expertise with individual responsibility to affect positive change. By funding and supporting small and often short-term programs and projects, IRTF is able to help give non-profit entities the financial boost necessary to turn creative ideas into real, sustainable solutions.

"There are so many innovative scientific ideas that achieve some level of success but never reach their full potential due to lack of funding and support. Innovative Research and Therapies Foundation seeks projects that address either societal problems or physiological ailments in a new way, that demonstrate measurable results, and that hold the promise of becoming self-sustaining fairly quickly. There's a real element of accountability with IRTF that helps ensure that the projects we fund achieve real, lasting, and replicable results."

- Tim Maguire, PhD, Founding Trustee, Innovative Research and Therapies Foundation
