WHAT: The Thirteenth Annual Women & Science Lecture and Luncheon The Latest Word on Heart Disease and Stroke:
Research, Prevention, and Treatment

WHERE: The Rockefeller University – 1230 York Avenue at
66th Street

WHEN: Thursday, May 13, 2010
12:00 to 2:00 p.m.

The 13th Annual W&S Lecture and Luncheon, which was held on Thursday, May 13th, raised over $1 million dollars of support for the University’s women scientists. The luncheon was attended by
over 450 women from New York’s business and philanthropic communities and featured renowned Rockefeller scientists Jan Breslow and Barry Coller in a talk about cardiovascular disease in
women. Holly Anderson, an associate professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, joined them in a panel discussion, and the event was hosted and moderated by RU President and 2001 Nobel
laureate Sir Paul Nurse.

Since the initiative’s founding, Women & Science has raised over
$14 million to establish the Rebecca Lancefield Professorship for a senior woman scientist, provided support for 105 postdoctoral and graduate fellows, as well as for faculty recruitment, the Child and Family Center, career development, high school and college education programs at the University, and seed funds for research in neuroscience and other fields.

Founded by John D. Rockefeller in 1901, The Rockefeller University was this nation’s first biomedical research university. Over the years, Rockefeller has been the site of many historic breakthroughs, including the landmark discovery that genes are made of DNA. To date, 23 scientists associated with the University have received the Nobel Prize.
