Wallace Coulter’s deepest passion was to improve health care and make these improvements available worldwide. Thus, it should come as no surprise that a major portion of Mr. Coulter’s estate is committed for this purpose. The Foundation accomplishes this through its’ Translational Research programs.
Upon Mr. Coulter’s death, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation was funded and developed relationships with colleges, universities and key hematology, cytometry and biomedical engineering societies. The goal of these relationships was to assist them in expanding their global reach and influence. By sharing expertise, scientific knowledge and best practices, they improve the standard of care in resource-limited areas. Starting in 2010, the Foundation also embraced Mr. Coulter’s love for Asian culture, paying forward the prospect of attaining the American Dream through efforts supporting the different Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community groups.
