Chronic Disease Research Foundation logo

The CDRF, an independent medical research charity, funds a range of gene research programs that aim to discover the cause of common diseases such as arthritis, back pain, migraine, asthma, dementia and heart disease. The CDRF runs many projects at the department of Twin Research, St Thomas' Hospital.

We hope that results of this research will contribute to the development of future diagnostic tests and treatments. We rely on non-governmental donations and grants.
