Volunteer and Outreach Initiatives
THE ROCKEFELLER UNIVERSITY COUNCIL members have served as ambassadors for the University since 1973, increasing awareness of Rockefeller’s scientific and educational mission. Through their financial support and advocacy they have helped to educate several generations of civic and philanthropic leaders about the importance of basic biomedical research. Membership is by invitation only.
WOMEN & SCIENCE was established in 1997 to highlight the crucial role of basic and clinical research in addressing the scientific challenges related to women’s health. The Women & Science initiative showcases the contributions of women scientists, and raises funds to support their work.
PARENTS & SCIENCE was launched by The Rockefeller University in 2007 to provide a unique resource for New York area parents who are interested in learning more about how scientific research is transforming our understanding of childhood health and behavior.
BRIDGES TO BETTER MEDICINE brings together world-class scientists and business leaders in the life sciences. The Bridges initiative is an effort to foster a robust intellectual exchange between academia and industry, which is critical to advancing biomedical breakthroughs.
