Focused Ultrasound Foundation

Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation is a tax-exempt, high-performance, entrepreneurial service organization with a global reach. We are market-driven and results-oriented. The Foundation seeks to leverage its trusted third party position through contributing financial and human resources to foster collaboration, to build knowledge and to streamline the process and overcome barriers.

The Foundation is on the leading edge of the venture philanthropy and social entrepreneurship movements and has become a model of how donor funding can be used to bridge the gap between laboratory research and widespread patient treatment.

As the Chief Medical Officer, Suzanne LeBlang, MD, represents the Foundation at conferences and major events, keeps abreast of the progress of clinical studies, ensures medical accuracy of Foundation communications, and directs patient inquiries. She has over 10 years of clinical experience performing focused ultrasound treatments on uterine fibroids and bone metastases and serves as Neuroradiologist and Medical Director of MR Guided Focused Ultrasound at the University MRI & Diagnostic Imaging Centers in Boca Raton, FL.
