The Ninth Annual Gala began with an inside look at the NYSCF laboratory at the NYSCF Science Fair, designed by David Rockwell. Anne & Vincent Mai, Sabrina Bertucci, and Rich Rundle were honored as 2014’s Stem Cell Heroes. Richard Parsons, Senior Advisor for Providence Equity Partners, Inc., gave the Welcome Remarks for the evening.

Three years ago, Rich Rundle joined the NYSCF Junior Leadership Council after his brother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis (MS). If he has learned one thing from his brother, it is that hope matters. NYSCF provides his brother with the hope to stay strong in his fight against MS. Every day, his family, his friends, and the NYSCF scientists working tirelessly to find cures all empower him to keep fighting.

For its annual public panel, the NYSCF Research Institute brought together leading stem cell scientists and other experts to explain how stem cell research will help find new treatments for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. This year’s panel was moderated by Zach Hall, PhD, Board Member, The New York Stem Cell Foundation, and Former Director, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
