PALM BEACH - Nobel Laureate Scientist Dr. Aaron Ciechanover, an Israel Cancer Association (ICA) funded researcher, recently presented two scientific presentations in Palm Beach while on a fundraising trip to support cancer research fellowships. These fellowships will be awarded to distinguished Israeli scientists in ICA’s fight to find a cure for cancer. Israel Cancer Association USA (ICA USA) Board President Bruce Koppel said “We were so pleased to have had Dr. Ciechanover in Palm Beach to meet our donors, who generously stepped up to fund five 2012 fellowships in recognition of his visit.” ICA fellowships are $22,000 each, over two-years.

Dr. Ciechanover addressed private gatherings of donors in Palm Beach homes on the topic of ‘Cancer therapy and personalized medicine – there is hope at the end of the tunnel’. The events, hosted by Nancy and Peter Brown and by Jane and Richard Karp, were by invitation only with a minimum gift toward cancer research fellowships. ICA USA is unique in that every dollar raised goes directly to research by Israel’s brilliant scientists.

Dr. Aaron Ciechanover, along with Drs. Avram Hershko and Irwin Rose, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2004. Their renowned research ultimately became an important platform for drug development, including a vaccine that protects young women the world over from HPV-induced uterine cervical carcinoma.

Among Nancy & Peter Brown’s guests were: Adam Brown, Thomas Greenbaum & Jami Beere, Gene Hoffman & Elyse Barkin, Celia Jacobs, Joan & Charles Lazarus, Dianne & Peter Meckler, Wilma & Charles Mooney, Sy & Priscilla Polishook, Lee & Harvey L. Poppel,  Bruce Youngman, and Bernice Weinstein.

Guests of Jane & Richard Karp included:  Linda & Roger Benjamin, Roberta & Stanley Bogen, Rita Krauss, Cecilia Kriser, Bonnie Lieberman, and Daisy & John Merey in addition to David Freitas and Fedra Vemercati, representing TD Bank, ICA USA’s corporate partner.
