 5th Annual  Celebrating  Science Benefit Lecture and Dinner,

Raising $2.7 Million 

NEW YORK – (November 4, 2016): The Rockefeller University’s Parents & Science Initiative and newly instated Rockefeller University President Dr. Richard P. Lifton, hosted the fifth annual Celebrating Science Benefit Lecture and Dinner Wednesday, November 2nd. The event raised over $2.7 million in support of Rockefeller University programs that advance medical research in children’s health and development.

This year’s benefit featured Rockefeller University physician-scientist Dr. Robert B. Darnell, a world leader in genomic research and recipient of the NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Clinical Scientist Award.

In his lecture, “Next Generation Genomics: Re-Inventing Medicine for You and Your Children”, Dr. Darnell spoke about his latest research on DNA sequencing and how it is revolutionizing the study of human genetic variation, health, and disease. 

Following the lecture, guests enjoyed dinner and a tribute honoring Rockefeller’s Bard Chair Russ Carson and his family—Judy, Cecily, Edward, and Madeline—for their philanthropic leadership in support of biomedical research and improving inner-city education. The evening ended with a live auction led by Hugh Hildesley of Sotheby’s, raising $110,000 for a grand total of $2.7 million for the evening.   

Event guests included prominent New York philanthropists James and Kathryn Murdoch, Lulu and Anthony Wang, Blair Pillsbury Enders, Stanley and Sydney Shuman, Michael and Alex Shuman, Alex and Jasmina Denner, Hartley Rogers and Amy Falls Rogers, Marlene Hess and James Zirin, John and Amanda Waldron, Joe and Diana DiMenna, Ceci Kurzman, Valerie and Wright Ohrstrom, and many more.
