The Masonic Medical Research Laboratory (MMRL) is an internationally recognized biomedical research institute founded by the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons in the New York State in 1958. The Cardiac Research Institute (CRI) at MMRL is an international center for genetic screening of inherited cardiac arrhythmia diseases, especially those responsible for sudden cardiac death, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and is actively involved in the development of safe and effective drugs for atrial fibrillation, thus addressing one of the greatest unmet medical needs facing our society. The Stem Cell Center at the CRI-MMRL is focused on creation of human models of disease, thus enabling the development of innovative therapies and cures. A recently inaugurated Organ and Tissue Bioengineering Program is working to build new hearts for transplantation in individuals with end-stage heart failure and other forms of heart disease.
Every donation, regardless of size has the ability to make a difference in our quality of life. The ability of any medical research institute to forge new frontiers in the fight against disease is in direct proportion to the financial resources that are made available.
