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.

The Global Stem Cell Consortium, funded by the Cure Alzheimer's Fund, is an international effort to derive Alzheimer's disease models from patients' skin samples through stem cell techniques to better understand and, ultimately, find a cure for this devestating disease. Capitalizing on the NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array, the group will produce and bank standardized stem cell lines as a resource for the scientific community.
On February 13th, 2013, The NYSCF Junior Leadership Council hosted a cocktail reception at Soho House to raise funds for the NYSCF Laboratory.
