he New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Honors

 Frank Gehry and Joel S. Marcus at Fourth Annual Dinner Celebration

 New York City:  Barry Diller, Chairman and CEO of IAC, presented architect Frank Gehry with The New York Stem Cell Foundation Humanitarian Award at Breaking Ground: NYSCF’s Fourth Annual Dinner Celebration, Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, NY. Over 300 people attended the event
to benefit NYSCF’s goal of accelerating the most advanced stem cell research.

 

NYSCF Board Member Dr. Zach W. Hall presented
 The New York Stem Cell Foundation Leadership Award to
Joel S. Marcus
, Chairman and CEO of Alexandria Real
 Estate Equities, Inc. The award honors individuals in public life who have resolutely and courageously supported stem cell research; Dr. Hall noted that Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. has become the nation’s most prominent developer of real estate for the life sciences.

 “This has been a watershed year for stem cell research and
for NYSCF,” said Susan L. Solomon, CEO and the organization’s co-founder, who noted that in recent weeks
 several NYSCF-Druckenmiller Fellows have published research that is moving scientists toward understanding and curing some of the most devastating diseases of the day. “What we have been able to achieve – with the support of so many people in this room – is nothing short of astonishing, though there is much more
 to accomplish.”

 Mr. Gehry received The New York Stem Cell Foundation Humanitarian Award, created to honor people, including non-scientists, who have resolutely and courageously supported stem cell research during a time of exceptional challenge for advanced scientific research in the United States. As an architect, Mr. Gehry has always worked at the cutting edge of science and technology, and for more than four decades has been actively involved in the work of the Hereditary Disease Foundation, which supports critical research in the life sciences. Most recently, he worked with the foundation to create the Leslie Gehry Brenner Award for Innovation in Science to honor the memory of his daughter, who died in 2008 of uterine cancer. NYSCF saluted Mr. Gehry for
 his lifetime of support for advanced scientific research.

 

The program also featured remarks by NYSCF Board Member John L. Eastman, a partner in Eastman & Eastman, and
NYSCF Board Chairman Roy Geronemus, MD. 

Attendees included dinner co-chairs Chuck Close, Fiona and Stan Druckenmiller, Dorothy Lichtenstein, and Martha Stewart. Also attending Henry Buhl; Karen E. Burke, MD, PhD; Russ and Judy Carson; Lewis B. Cullman; Elizabeth Kabler; Evie Lipper, MD and Bill Speck, MD; Richard D. Kaplan and Edwina Sandys; Richard Meier; Alice Rogoff; Shirley Lord Rosenthal; and Ambassador Carl Spielvogel and Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel.


Honorary co-chairs included Senator Charles E. Schumer; Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand; Senator Arlen Specter; Representative Michael N. Castle; Representative Charles B. Rangel; Congressman Jerrold Nadler; and New York State Senator Thomas K. Duane.


Dinner committee members included Maryam and Jonathan Dickey; Jodie and John Eastman; Eileen and Richard Ekstract; Gail and Roy Geronemus, MD; Paul Healy; Debbie and Peter Kahn; Lynn Mackler; Carol Roaman; Lisa and Michael Schultz; Susan L. Solomon and Paul Goldberger; and Susan Towers.

 

The event took place in conjunction with NYSCF’s Fourth Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference on October 13 and 14, 2009, which is devoted to demonstrating the potential of stem cell research to advance cures for the major diseases of our time.  

 

About The New York Stem Cell Foundation

 

Founded in 2005, NYSCF is dedicated to furthering stem cell research to advance the search for cures of the major diseases of our time. NYSCF opened the first privately funded stem cell laboratory in New York City in March 2006 to serve as a “safe haven” where scientists can conduct advanced stem cell research free of federal restrictions. The organization supports scientists engaged in stem cell research through grants, fellowships and symposia; runs collaborative, state-of-the-art research facilities directly focused on curing disease; and educates the public about the importance and potential benefits of stem cell research.
