Our Grantees

To Make A


Cedars-Sinai is a nonprofit academic healthcare organization serving the diverse Los Angeles community and beyond by providing high-quality patient care, conducting research that leads to lifesaving discoveries and innovations, and educating the medical professionals of tomorrow. Grants from the Carol Moss Foundation have supported Cedars-Sinai’s pioneering medical research achievements, educational programs and community care. Two examples include the endowment of the Carol Moss Foundation Chair in Medical Discovery, which bolsters leading-edge cancer research. In addition, the foundation funded the successful research of a team studying three-dimensional representations of patients’ lung tissue (called organoids) that are grown in the lab and placed into tiny “lung on chip” devices that can be used as treatment models. These organ on chip models make it possible to determine the effectiveness of various medicines and experimental treatments based on each patient’s specific cellular biology.
