Rockefeller University’s 16th Annual Women & Science Spring Lecture and Luncheon


The Rockefeller University’s 16th Annual Women & Science Spring Lecture and Luncheon

  On Thursday, May 9, The Rockefeller University will host its 16th Annual Women & Science Lecture and Luncheon.  The event will be hosted by President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and held on campus at 1230 York Avenue at 66th Street.  The lecture will begin at
12 Noon, followed by a luncheon at 1:00 PM.

The speaker at this year’s lecture will be Rockefeller professor
Cori Bargmann, Ph.D.

Dr. Bargmann is a renowned neuroscientist whose work on microscopic organism c. elegans has helped us understand fundamental behaviors in larger animals, and possibly even humans.  A recipient of the inaugural $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, Dr. Bargmann was recently appointed by President Obama to lead a major national brain research initiative.  She is the Torsten N. Wiesel Professor and Head of the Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior at the University. 

Samantha Boardman Rosen, M.D., Katerina Alevizaki-Dracopoulos, Judith Roth Berkowitz, Patricia Rosenwald, and Lulu C. Wang will serve as Chairs this year. Founding Chairs are Lydia A. Forbes, Isabel P. Furlaud, Nancy Kissinger and
Sydney R. Shuman. 


The Rockefeller University is a world-renowned center for research and graduate education in the biomedical sciences, chemistry, and physics. The University was founded by John D. Rockefeller in 1901 as the nation’s first institute for medical research. Twenty-four researchers associated with Rockefeller throughout its history have been awarded the Nobel Prize.
