After 10 years of conducting research, Larry realized how many promising research avenues are never expolored when it personally happened to him as a medical student. This inspired him to start Healthfundit, and help researchers tell better stories.

This concept sounds innovative and important, as we are forced to rely less and less of federal funding for research and clinical trials"-- Dr. Douglas Martin, Ph.d Auburn University
“A major impediment that has prevented my laboratory from pursuing new and innovative ideas that I have had over my career is the lack of seed funds to pursue novel/innovative ideas. It is virtually impossible to obtain a government grant or venture capital to pursue a novel and potentially breakthrough technology without preliminary experimental evidence that demonstrates a high probability for a successful outcome. Healthfundit provides an exciting and viable solution to this major roadblock by lessening the risk via distribution of contributions over a large number of contributors.”
I believe it is a novel idea to fund innovative biomedical research with a new paradigm as well as to facilitate the rapid progression of basic research findings into the commercial realm.-- Dr. Ivor Royston, MD.
"Science is about the pursuit of knowledge, but working scientists will tell you there’s a lot more to it. The politics reach from local labs to the U.S. Congress. And then there’s the money-scrounging. Research dollars boost the whole economy, but that doesn’t mean there’s enough funding out there to run labs or find cures. Researchers with great ideas, with a lot of potential, that can save lives, don’t get enough funding to bring these treatments to the people who need it the most...”
