The Focused Ultrasound Foundation was created to accelerate the development of focused ultrasound as a noninvasive technology. The Foundation organizes and funds research, fosters collaboration, and builds awareness among patients and professionals. It is the largest nongovernmental source of funding for focused ultrasound research, has a strong global influence, and is increasingly recognized as a model social entrepreneurship organization.

Because the field is changing so rapidly, the Foundation performs the following tasks on a frequent and ongoing basis:

  • Identifies current roadblocks by analyzing the critical path from laboratory research to widespread utilization
  • Applies resources to overcome barriers and take advantage of opportunities
  • Engages in a wide variety of strategic activities to help accomplish its mission
  • Helps identify critical unmet clinical needs and set research priorities for the technology’s various mechanisms of action and clinical indications
  • Labors to change the culture in the ecosystem to make all stakeholders more patient-centric with a sense of urgency and a sense of collaboration
  • Orchestrates the flow of information
  • Invests time, money, and energy to break down silos of secrecy between various government agencies, academic institutions, manufacturers, and associated industrial organizations
  • Fosters collaboration and stimulates innovation to rapidly achieve a critical mass of knowledge

The Journal of Neuro-Oncology is a multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed medical journal covering cancer of the central nervous system. It is published 15 times per year.
