It All Started in 1947


That’s when Dr. William Randolph “Randy” Lovelace II, an acclaimed surgeon and Harvard medical graduate, established a much-needed specialty medicine clinic and nonprofit medical foundation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Originally known as the Lovelace Foundation for Medical Education and Research, Lovelace Biomedical stands today as one of the nation’s largest independent, not-for-profit organization conducting basic and applied research to advance novel therapeutics into the clinic and beyond.

Over the years, the organization’s research operations expanded in size, scope and recognition—very much in parallel with the advances of the medical and health care industry overall. Initially funded predominantly by government contracts to execute cutting-edge projects related to public health, Lovelace Biomedical has became known as a place of medical firsts and continues to build on that legacy today.
