Mission and origins

The Mobilizing Foundation is committed to the eradication of COVID-19 and the prevention of future pandemics through collaborative scientific research and massive surveillance testing

In Spring 2020, Prem and Margaret saw the grave state of a Pandemic-struck world and decided to combine their talents and align their networks to find a way to help. This commitment resulted in the Mobilizing Foundation, a non-profit that offers low-cost Saliva Pool Testing to schools and communities that cannot afford individual testing in order to help them return to normalcy.

In collaboration with SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University-University Hospital of Brooklyn, the Foundation now provides:

  • tools to support massive surveillance testing at low costs or free.

Most recently, the Mobilizing Foundation supported the Back to School Conference at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas, bringing together brilliant minds under the united goal of getting students back in school with the help of testing.
