NYSCF Rings NASDAQ Opening Bell

This morning, NYSCF CEO Susan L. Solomon rang the NASDAQ bell to officially open stock trading for the day.

“I’m incredibly optimistic about the future of medicine because of the advances that ourselves and our colleagues around the globe are making,” said Ms. Solomon in her opening remarks. “Our high-risk, high-reward approach has resulted in 18 promising treatments that are in or about to enter clinical trials.”

Ms. Solomon was then joined by NYSCF staff, scientists, and board members for the official bell ringing and opening of the markets.

The ceremony, along with a video outlining NYSCF’s mission of accelerating treatments and cures for the most devastating diseases of our time, was projected on NASDAQ tower in Times Square, a seven-story screen seen by thousands of New Yorkers each day. Footage of the event was also broadcast on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg News Network, and Bloomberg TV.
