The UCSD Mitochondrial Research Fund is a non-profit founded by the Whaley Family to raise funds and awareness for research to find a cure for Mitochondrial Disease. Both of their daughters suffer from NARP, which is a specific type of Mitochondrial Disease. Further information regarding their journey is found under "Our Stories." Research efforts supported by the Mitochondrial Research Fund go directly to the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center (MMDC) at University of California San Diego.
The MMDC has the goal of raising a substantial amount of money over the next two years to expand it's clinical services and support research. Patients are treated for Mitochondrial Disease at UCSD Medical Center and Rady Children's Hospital. Our joint mission is to create a comprehensive center or excellence for research, diagnosis, and treatment of children and young adults with mitochondrial disease. Your contributions will help make this a reality!!
