EAT funds promising research in two ways:

Funding Grants: EAT's Medical Advisory Board uses an objective grant process to recommend funding allocations for research studies.

Directed Donations: EAT provides advisory services to major donors looking to fund a specific scientist, research problem or institution. EAT helps donors define what they are looking for, evaluate the landscape, offer design input, evaluate costs and structure payments. Minimum directed donation of $100,000 required.
