Welcome to the Allen Research Endowment. Our mission is to save lives of persons with Opioid-related addiction and other Complex diseases through a comprehensive approach focused on the development of new medical technologies, faith-based education and public policy.

Currently, the Allen Research Endowment is focused on the following conditions and diseases:

Pain Management

  • In 2016, over 28,000 deaths in the U.S. were caused by Opioid overdoses, of which more than 50% involved prescription Opioids. Source: Centers for Disease Control
  • Opioid-related deaths are an epidemic in the U.S., yet pharmaceutical companies and doctors continue to prescribe Opioids for pain treatment
  • We believe Opioid-related addictions cause chronic inflammation of the body’s immune system, which may lead to contracting Complex diseases and death. Therefore, we prioritize medical technologies that can reset the body’s immune system and/or cure Complex diseases.

Autoimmune Diseases

  • Chronic inflammation of the human immune system is the cause of over 50 diseases including Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and HIV/AIDs
  • We believe it is also the cause of Addictions

Superbug Infections

  • Drug resistant fungal infections
  • This is an emergency threat today and the next worldwide epidemic not only to humans, but also food supply and development. Source: World Health Organization

Advanced Cancers

  • Cutaneous metastasis occurs when cancer cells spread to the skin, such as with breast cancer
  • Stage 4 cutaneous breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths
