Medical Research & Talent

Valhalla's goal is to identify breakthroughs to prevent, remediate, and cure multiple sclerosis and related autoimmune diseases, and to create a robust pipeline of new talent in medical research.

Valhalla Foundation works to identify medical breakthroughs for multiple sclerosis and related autoimmune diseases by funding leading researchers in the field with early, consistent, meaningful, and catalytic funding.

We also work to accelerate medical breakthroughs across a range of diseases by funding promising scientists early in their careers at institutions that can nurture their talents.

Valhalla Foundation is not actively looking for new medical research and talent grantees.
