Biomedical science is progressing rapidly and holds great promise. In large part the promise of new treatments and cures for disease risks that we all face requires enormous investment in biomedical research. The Thurman-Zumwalt Foundation (TZF) has been established to ensure that appropriate attention is given to the health risks faced, on our behalf, by those defending the nation and fulfilling its overseas humanitarian obligations.

The TZF is named after U.S. Army General Maxwell R. Thurman and Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr. Both men served their country, and those who served under them, with both integrity and vision: It is these attributes that will characterize the research commissioned and supported by the TZF.
