FIM, The Foundation for Innovation in Medicine, was established in 1976 by Stephen L. DeFelice, M.D. It is a nonprofit foundation whose purpose is to accelerate medical discovery by creating a more productive clinical research community.
The cost and risk to conduct clinical research, the critical step in medical discovery, are major factors that retard the availability of new therapies that can eliminate or ameliorate those conditions which ail us.

FIM has asked patients (by the way, we are all patients) the fundamental question, "Who represents you?" or "What do you want?" Their responses are summarized as follows: "If I have a disease, get rid of it", or "If I don't have a disease, I don't want to get it." In medical terms these responses deal with the treatment and prevention of disease, respectively.
