Founded by Professor Valter Longo, its goal is to promote creativity in science and medicine so that everyone—even patients without financial means—can benefit from new knowledge. The Valter Longo Foundation is a non-profit organization that sponsors and carries out integrative research to translate basic science into clinical trials and novel therapies useful to patients who have exhausted other treatment options, seek to improve the efficacy of conventional treatments and wish to reduce common treatment side effects.
