The John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) focuses on the most ethical and cost-effective way of conducting medical research to help develop therapies and cures for a variety of diseases. Most diseases share a common technical requirement to create therapies. The Institute’s research focuses on these common technical requirements by recruiting patients to procure tissue to develop stem cells and cancer cells for medical research.

The Institute differentiates itself from other research organizations in the following manner:

1. We do NOT support embryonic stem cell research. We support research that is pro-life driven.

2. We devote more than half of our budget towards medical research, which is far greater than most established foundations.

We need your support now.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Institute has an active cancer research program that includes working with breast cancer patients. For an overview of this program, please check out the following video. Donations to the Institute do not support embryonic stem cell research and are not directed to organizations like Planned Parenthood.

We are receiving increasing financial support from donors asking whether their donations will go directly to support ALS research. We want to assure people that any donation specifically directed towards finding a cure for ALS will be used to support medical research for that cause.

The service of humanity leads us to insist, in season and out of season, that those using the latest advances of science, especially in the field of biotechnology, must never disregard fundamental ethical requirements by invoking a questionable solidary which eventually leads to discriminating between one life and another and ignoring the dignity which belongs to every human being.

~Pope John Paul II
