NCNM's Helfgott Research Institute
NCNM's Helfgott Research Institute is a professionally independent, non-profit research institute whose mission is to conduct rigorous, high quality, research on the art and science of healing, specifically working to understand natural forms of medicine. Together, scientists from the fields of naturopathic medicine, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, immunology, and nutrition apply their expertise to the study of natural medicine.
Established in June of 2003 with the help of a donation from Don Helfgott, the Helfgott Research Institute has a state-of-the-art basic science laboratory, as well as the resources to carry out clinical research.
Projects & Research
Our goal is to find out what natural medicine therapies work, why they work, and to develop methodologies for studying modalities that don’t always fall into the traditional biomedical model of research.
