The Rockefeller University is pleased to announce its inaugural Parents & Science "Celebrating Science" Benefit Dinner will be held on November 7, 2012 at Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Hall. The evening will bring together world-class scientists, renowned child health care experts, and parents and grandparents interested in the most recent scientific advances revolutionizing our understanding of human development and diseases of childhood.

Rockefeller University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Ph.D., will host the benefit, which will raise funds to help create a new Center for Research on Child and Adolescent Health, as well as for educational outreach initiatives for students and teachers in New York City. Robert Lustig, M.D., a renowned pediatric scientist who trained at Rockefeller, will present his latest findings in a lecture titled "Darwin, Diet, Disease and Dollars: How the Sugar in Processed Foods Has Changed Society."

The Rockefeller University is a world-renowned center for research and graduate education in the biomedical sciences, chemistry, and physics. The University was founded by John D. Rockefeller in 1901 as the nation's first institute for medical research. Twenty-four researchers associated with Rockefeller throughout its history have been awarded the Nobel Prize. In 2007, The Rockefeller University established the Parents & Science initiative to heighten awareness within New York City?s parent community of the groundbreaking research being conducted by Rockefeller scientists. Since then, more than 1,700 parents have attended Parents & Science lectures to learn about the latest discoveries relevant to the care and nurturing of children from infancy through adolescence.
