PALM BEACH, Fla. (December 13, 2012) – Nearly 100 guests attended a private reception at the Palm Beach home of Yvonne and Nasser Kazeminy on Dec. 4 to learn more about the scientific research and achievements at the newly named Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience. The event was part of the grand opening ceremonies for the new 100,000 sq. ft. research center in Jupiter. Nasser Kazeminy serves on the Institute’s board of trustees. Dr. Peter Gruss, president of Germany’s Max Planck Society and Dr. David Fitzpatrick, scientific director and CEO of the Max Planck Florida Institute welcomed the group. Research Group Leader Dr. McLean Bolton shared her reason for choosing the field of neuroscience and discussed her research focused on brain circuitry related to understanding schizophrenia. Dr. Axel Ullrich of the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany concluded the evening with a presentation on his team’s exciting findings in the field of molecular biology and cancer treatments.

Guests in attendance included German State Secretary Cornelia Quennet-Thielen; German Counsel General Countess Eva Kendeffy; Jeff and Katy Amling; Kenneth and Blair Beall; Mark Cook; Alex and Renate Dreyfoos; George Elmore; Howard and Patricia Lester; Gary Lickle; Hillie Mahoney; George Michel; Mike and Barbara Mitrione; Greg Novak; Ahmed and Shari Toufanian; Wally and Betsy Turner; Greg and Bettina Young; and Mariette DiChristina, Editor In Chief of Scientific American.

“This is an important and historic week for both the Max Planck Society and the State of Florida,” said Dr. Fitzpatrick. “We have created a research environment where we are limited not by laboratory walls or even the laws of physics. We are limited only by the furthest reaches of our mind. This institute will attract not only the best in the field of neuroscience from around the world, generating opportunities to create pathways to medical breakthroughs that had once been little more than science fiction.”

The nonprofit Max Planck Florida Foundation supports the Institute’s scientific research as well as its educational programs by attaining private philanthropic support from individuals, corporations, and foundations across the United States and with organizing and coordinating all fundraising programs.
