Weill Cornell Medical College announced that it has received a $100 million gift

Weill Cornell Medical College announced that it has received a $100 million gift from longtime benefactors Joan and Sanford I. Weill and the Weill Family Foundation to launch the Medical College's $300 million Driving Discoveries, Changing Lives campaign dedicated to using the most advanced scientific approaches to rapidly translate research breakthroughs into innovative treatments and therapies for patients. "We are profoundly appreciative of the generosity of Joan and Sandy Weill, and of all our loyal donors who are committed to advancing medical discoveries and, above all, making a difference in our patients' lives," says Dr. Laurie H. Glimcher, the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornell Medical College. "It is incumbent upon us to find therapies and cures for the world's most intractable diseases, and the Weills' phenomenal leadership and unwavering support will ensure that we enhance the health of our patients for future generations." "Advancing Weill Cornell's mission would not be possible without the extraordinary leadership and support of Joan and Sandy Weill," says David J. Skorton, president of Cornell University. "It's critical to recognize the need to support student scholarship as a way for us to attract the next generation of physicians and scientists who will truly drive discovery and change lives." The Driving Discoveries, Changing Lives campaign will bring to fruition Weill Cornell's vision for the Belfer Research Building — opening in January — as a hub for multidisciplinary biomedical research and recruit the world's best and brightest scientists to advance research and treatment of some of the most formidable health challenges, including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and Alzheimer's diseases. Funds raised by the campaign also will support the education of Weill Cornell's students, who as the next generation of physicians and scientists will pioneer medicine's newest frontiers. The Weills' transformative $100 million gift is devoted to two new centers that will investigate cancer, diabetes, obesity and metabolic disorders: the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Cancer Research Center and the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Metabolic Syndrome Center. Weill Cornell has received more than $50 million in additional gifts for the Driving Discoveries, Changing Lives campaign, bringing it halfway to its total campaign goal. "Joan and I have had the honor and privilege to contribute to Weill Cornell Medical College, helping to sustain this extraordinary institution as one of the world's leaders in biomedical research," says Mr. Weill, chairman of the Weill Cornell Board of Overseers. "We are immensely proud of what Weill Cornell has achieved — and what more we can accomplish in the years to come." http://weill.cornell.edu/news/releases/feature/09_10_13.shtml Project Name Weill Cornell Medical College announced that it has received a $100 million gift .
