Albert Einstein College of Medicine Receives $25-Million Gift to Support Stem Cell and Epigenomic Research and Clinical Skills Training

s, epigenomics and clinical training were areas where we could help make an important contribution, both to Einstein and to the future of biomedical research," said Dr. Ruth Gottesman, who was elected chair of Einstein's Board of Overseers in 2007 and is the first woman, and the first former faculty member, to serve in that role. "We want our gift to support endeavors that will position Albert Einstein College of Medicine to excel in both research and medical education, while also attracting the best and brightest to our laboratories and to our classrooms."

"The Gottesman gift will contribute significantly to Einstein's already formidable research efforts in stem cell/regenerative medicine research and epigenomics," said Allen M. Spiegel, M.D., The Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean at Einstein. "Additionally, the gift will establish an innovative facility to further enhance the training of future generations of physicians at Einstein, helping them master the clinical skills that will prepare them to be first-rate health care providers."

The specific benefits of the gift to Einstein, as well as to the patients who will be helped by the resulting research and training, are as follows:

-- Exploring the basic biology of stem cells -- discovering, for example,

how a human embryonic stem cell develops into a liver cell rather than

a brain cell -- is crucially important if stem cells are to be used to

treat a wide range of devastating human diseases. Einstein researchers

are at the forefront of this inquiry, and the Gottesman gift

establishing the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine

Research will help them achieve their research objectives.

Already, for example, Einstein professor Eric Bouhassira is well on the

way to directing human embryonic stem cells to form blood-forming cells

(which could save the lives of cancer patients needing transplants of'/>"/>
