E-Newsletter: October 22, 2015


You’re invited to participate in a unique opportunity to interact with Nobel Laureate Dr. Paul Greengard, Director of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research at The Rockefeller University. 

This invitation is provided exclusively to stakeholders of the Fisher Center Foundation as we kick off a year-long 20th Anniversary celebration. In 1995, Zachary Fisher and David Rockefeller joined forces to launch the Fisher Center Foundation in honor of Zachary’s wife Elizabeth. Since then, the Foundation has contributed tens of millions of dollars to fund research in the quest to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. This year, thanks in part to generous donations from our Foundation supporters, we moved one step closer with the discovery of a protective molecule, called WAVE 1, which could pave the way for new Alzheimer’s treatments.

This unique online event will take place on Thursday, November 5 from 12:00 – 1 p.m. EST. To ask a question of Dr. Greengard and hear directly from him live visit Reddit.com, click on Dr. Greengard’s title, and then, the site will prompt you to save your question.

That’s not all. Also that week, on November 3 at 8:30am ET, please tune into NBC’s Today Show to watch an interview with Marc Flajolet, Assistant Research Professor at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research at The Rockefeller University and Howard Lutnick, Co-Vice Chairman of the Fisher Center Foundation as Alzheimer’s Awareness Month begins.
