|Our Organization |
The UMDF was founded in 1996 through a merger of several smaller foundations established by those who lost loved ones to the disease. Starting as a volunteer organization based out of the basement of a home, the UMDF has grown into a nationally recognized, non-profit organization that not only employs nineteen full time staff members but is also represented internationally through our volunteers who operate more than 50 local chapters, groups and ambassador programs.
Our mission is to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families.
