Tanoto Foundation Medical Research Fund
Tanoto Foundation supports medical research and development for the purpose of improving health standards in Asia. We believe that our goal of enhancing public health can be realised through collaboration with leading healthcare and research institutions in Singapore. Through building strong partnerships and providing catalytic funding to research initiatives that are scalable innovative and impactful, we hope to bring about an improvement in the overall wellbeing and lifespans of people in Asia and beyond.
Tanoto Foundation’s Medical Research Fund (MRF) is designed to support research excellence and collaborative efforts to generate new knowledge and innovations that will help address prevalent diseases in the region. In its position as the first private philanthropic foundation to launch such a fund, Tanoto Foundation seeks to foster a culture of sustainable giving that amplifies the long-term impact of philanthropic-funded research.
