The mission of the Upwelling Foundation is to foster the intellectual development of the next succession of critical thinkers through an apprenticeship in basic research in the medical sciences.

"One of the things Dr. Ouellette and I discovered in our over 30 years of doing research together was the value of mentoring young people to help shape the future of the medical sciences."

Dr. Loren Latta
"Young people have dreams and they should dream. A hand is attached to a living sentient being that has dreams. What do you want to be? Where do you want to go? We try to help them to see what is possible.”

Dr. Elizabeth Anne Ouellette
