About LSF: Mission


The Life Sciences Foundation is dedicated to capturing the history, preserving the heritage, and sharing the stories of biotechnology. The Foundation collects and organizes historical information to educate and inspire future innovators, to engage the general public, and to provide lay audiences with a robust understanding of life sciences and biotechnology.



The Life Sciences Foundation will be the leading, independent steward of life sciences and biotechnology heritage. The Foundation will act as an unparalleled scholarly resource and as a trusted translator of biotechnology’s extraordinary stories.
