Built by one
man for many

To Alfred E. Mann, living for himself was seldom an option. After starting successful aerospace and medical device companies, he dedicated his life to making sure that others enjoyed theirs.

In 1985, he founded the Alfred E. Mann Foundation for Scientific Research. This 501(c)(3) medical research organization built its storied success by leveraging an exceptional team and world-class equipment in pursuit of solutions for under-met medical needs.

Four decades later, the Foundation—now huMannity Medtec—is determined to carry the spirit of Al Mann as it moves forward, celebrating new generations of curious thinkers and makers and developing the medical technologies of the future.

Peerless leadership from day 1

Joe Schulman (1935-2020) was the founding CEO of The Alfred E. Mann Foundation for Scientific Research (now huMannity Medtec). The lead scientist behind the rechargeable implantable pacemaker, Dr. Schulman spent the next 20+ years guiding our team through a series of exciting, impactful projects that resulted in the development of several groundbreaking medical innovations, including the first cochlear implant with bi-directional telemetry, and the first injectable micro-stimulator to restore function to impaired limbs and organs. We at huMannity continue to benefit from the principles Dr. Schulman established during our early years.
