Martine and Bina Rothblatt founded United Therapeutics when their daughter Jenesis was diagnosed with PAH as a young girl. Faced with a stunning lack of information, support, and treatment options, they became committed to providing better therapies and eventually a cure for this disease. Jenesis and her story remain the inspiration behind United Therapeutics and the motivation for the Jenesis Innovative Research Awards, designed to award junior investigators dedicated to medical advancement for pulmonary hypertension through independent clinical, preclinical, and outcomes-based research.
