About FPID

The Foundation for Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases

Foundation for Primary Immunodeficiency (FPID) was established in the US to support the education, early diagnosis, genetic counseling, therapy, and research of PID in both India and the U.S. The Foundation supports many activities in the US and India (click here), and has established FPID Centers in India (click here)

The Foundation has established the Thomas Waldmann Award for Excellence in Human Immunology to recognize Dr. Waldmann’s contribution to primary immunodeficiency.  This award is given annually to an outstanding immunologist/cell biologist who has made major contributions, directly or indirectly to primary immunodeficiency.

The Foundation provides supports for its activities from funds generated at the annual gala. The Foundation holds its annual black-tie gala banquet-entertainment fundraiser event at Island Hotel, Newport Beach, California in October-November.
