THE FOUNDATION FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY RESEARCH

The Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization governed by a board of trustees.

WHO WE ARE

The Foundation for Physical Therapy Research is an independent 501(c)(3) governed by a Board of Trustees. Our work would not be possible without the guidance and expertise of an extraordinary group of volunteers who serve on our board and those who serve on special committees. Many have first-hand experience as past recipients of Foundation funding or are dedicated donors.

Our team also includes the people that carry out the Foundation’s day-to-day operations and strategic plan — the Foundation’s staff.
