Our Mission

To promote education and research into methods for the diagnosis and in utero treatment of fetal genetic and congenital disorders.

Founded in 2001, the IFMSS Foundation was created to help support research and education in fetal therapy. The Foundation has worked in conjunction with the International Fetal Medicine and Surgery Society to support the annual meetings of the Society. (www.IFMSS.org) which is an annual research conference for the world’s leaders in developing methods to treat serious disorders before birth. We also work with subsequently developed related organizations performing research into methods to improve the health of the fetus such as: Eurofetus (http://www.eurofetus.org/index.htm), and NAFTNET (http://www.naftnet.org).
