About us


Fournier-Majoie Foundation is a non-profit organization (N.P.O.) whose mission is to recognize and support researchers-finders-entrepreneurs who are willing to develop solutions to significantly benefit cancer patients.

Since its foundation in December 2006, the Fournier-Majoie foundation supports researchers-finders-entrepreneurs in every stage of biomarker development.

Our goal is to supply the medical community with the tools it needs for the early detection and/or identification, prognosis and treatments of cancer so that the cancer patients can be treated more efficiently.
On December 31, 2018, the total amount allocated to selected projects was € 8.2 million from which an amount of € 7.7 million has effectively been paid.

Venture philantropy

Our foundation is implementing a venture philantropic approach to medical R&D support: we are offering not only financial support but also non-financial guidance.

As other Venture Philantropic Organisations we maintain a set of widely accepted key characteristics. These are: high engagement, tailored financing, multi-year support, non-financial support, involvement of networks, organisational capacity-building and performance measurement.

Our goal: shortening the time from bench to bedside.
