About the UMDF The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation was founded in 1996 through a merger of several smaller foundations established by those who lost loved ones to the disease. Starting as a volunteer organization based in the basement of a home, the UMDF has grown into a nationally recognized organization. The UMDF is represented by countless volunteers who operate more than 60 local chapters, groups and ambassador programs and offers support to all sufferers of mitochondrial disorders regardless of diagnosis, suspected or confirmed. UMDF Mission To promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families. UMDF Research Since 1996, the UMDF has provided more than $11 million in grants to support research that may lead to less invasive diagnoses, better treatments, and ultimately a cure.

The UMDF keeps members updated with the latest treatment advances and information through a quarterly newsletter. UMDF members are able to find support on the local and regional level through various chapters, groups and ambassadors.
