The Progeria Research Foundation’s work would not be possible without everyone who participates in helping us achieve our mission.
Employment at PRF
As of November, 2022, the PRF team is comprised of 14 dedicated, collaborative, and industrious employees who contribute diverse skillsets and backgrounds in support of our mission. Staff members collaborate both in person and virtually, as we expand our team of in-office, hybrid, and remote employees.
PRF staff have the opportunity to interact with our generous donors, families we serve, clinical practitioners, and/or leading researchers in the field of Progeria. Work at PRF is fast-paced and dynamic. As PRF continues to grow, we are seeking creative, experienced, and passionate candidates to join our team.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
PRF is committed to fostering and maintaining a work environment where diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are fully integrated into everything we do for the benefit of our employees and the families that we serve. Diversity is the presence and celebration of difference that enriches our workplace, including identity-focused characteristics, such as race, gender, disability or age. Equity is the fair treatment, access and opportunity for all. And inclusion is a culture that fosters feelings of belonging and ensures that individuals with different identities are valued and welcome within our workplace.
Moreover, Progeria is equally prevalent across all sexes, races, and geographical areas. Here at PRF, we work closely with patient families, physicians, researchers, and donors from around the globe. We aim to attract a diverse and inclusive team to help us best serve our culturally, economically, and lingually varied patient population and scientific community. Candidates who can contribute to the diversification and enrichment of our team’s ideas and perspectives are encouraged to apply for our open positions, and to identify their strengths in this area.
