Supporting Science for the Global Good
The New York Academy of Sciences firmly believes that science and technology are critical to our continued well-being—whether intellectual, physical, or economic—and knows you do, too. After all, it's thanks to the support of individual donors like you that our programs are entering 2013 stronger, and broader in scope, than ever.
The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science, following the successful collaboration with the World Health Organization to develop and unveil a Global Nutrition Research Agenda, continues to bring together leading policy makers and researchers to define best practices for interventions to address worldwide nutrition challenges, from maternal and infant malnutrition to diabetes and obesity.
- The Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Initiative will be hosting its first biennial conference this fall, which will assemble academic researchers, industry scientists, patient advocates, and government and foundation representatives to advance progress and collaboration in four target areas: the basic research landscape, early drug development and translation, clinical trials, and facilitating the public-private interface.
These are just a few examples, of course: every Academy program aims to inspire scientific innovation, spur development of real-world solutions, and support both professional and citizen scientists. That's why we hope you'll consider reaffirming your commitment to the Academy by making a gift, and help build a strong community of—and strong outcomes for—science.
With warmest wishes,
President & CEO
