About the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation
Wallace Coulter's deepest passion was to improve health care and make these improvements available and affordable to everyone. Thus, it should come as no surprise, that Mr. Coulter dedicated his wealth to continuing to improve health care through medical research and engineering. Prior to his death Mr. Coulter established the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation to fund these areas.
The Foundation received funding in December 1999 and will continue this legacy by funding translational research in biomedical engineering with the goal of accelerating the introduction of new technologies into patient care. Prior to the establishment of its two main programs to support translational research in biomedical engineering, the Foundation began working with colleges, universities and professional associations that Wallace Coulter was associated with during his lifetime. His values of endless curiosity, continuous learning, teamwork, consideration and respect for the individual, coupled with the highest level of ethics and integrity are the cornerstone values of The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
