Chronic Disease Research Foundation

Who we are

The Chronic Disease Research Foundation (CDRF), founded in May 1996, is an independent medical research charity.

The CDRF funds a wide range of gene research programmes that aim to discover the cause of common diseases such as arthritis, back pain, migraine, asthma, dementia and heart disease.

We hope that results of this research will contribute to the development of future diagnostic tests and treatments.

The CDRF has funded a number of successful projects at the Department
of Twin Research, a major Department within King’s College, based at St Thomas’ Hospital. Through the use of clinical, questionnaire and genetic data gathered from over 15,000 ‘TwinsUK’ volunteers over 20 years, scientists have identified the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to many chronic diseases.
