The Nathaniel Wharton Fund
Tell Me More

What We Do

The foundation was created in 1992 at Columbia University Medical Center to provide venture capital for innovative bio-behavioral research.

The Nathaniel Wharton Fund serves a unique function in support of innovative biomedical research at the intersection of mind, brain, and behavior with physical illness. The Fund supports a broad variety of projects in basic research, clinical care, and teaching at the Columbia University Medical Center. All activities are directed at finding practical ways to incorporate mind-body issues into the practices of medicine. The Fund also provides ongoing support for Columbia University Cardiovascular Psychophysiology Laboratory, a central facility for research in mind-body interactions. The Fund's small size permits the rapid support of innovative projects as new mind-body medical issues arise. Since 1997, approximately $1.9 million in Wharton Fund research support has resulted in more than $50 million of funding.
