Donor Comments

The importance of this gift for me is that it keeps alive Russ’ dream of finding a cure for diabetes. By collaborating with the best minds in research, we will achieve that dream, and improve the health and lives of millions of people who live with this disease and its devastating complications.

It is an honor for me to provide an opportunity for Columbia to start its stem cell research program. I am hopeful that the development of life-saving therapeutics for debilitating diseases is no longer out of reach.

Charles H. Brunie, the Jean I. and Charles H. Brunie Foundation

We are proud to support the Jerry and Emily Spiegel Laboratory for Cell Replacement Therapies at CUMC. Stem cells offer the exciting promise of regenerative medicine. The research conducted in this lab will help understand how to harness the brain’s own stem cells to treat such neurological disorders as Parkinson’s disease.

Jerry and Emily Spiegel, the Jerry & Emily Spiegel Family Foundation, Inc.

We are delighted to provide a research institution like Columbia with the means to achieve progress in this important area of research.
