Life Sciences Capital
  • In 1962, Morris and Rose Milstein established a Chair in surgery in their name at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
  • In the 1970s, the Milsteins funded the pioneering interferon research of Dr. Samuel Graff.
  • Soon after, they built the Milstein Hospital Building of what is now New York Presbyterian Medical Center.
  • In 2000, the Paul Milstein Institute for Surgical Science became a home for basic scientists as well as post-graduate trainees. Thus, the Milstein Institute is seeding the future of medicine with an extraordinary cadre of surgical scientists. The scientists it supports have discovered receptor for various chronic and acute afflictions. The mechanism is a compound aptly named "RAGE" - and it just may hold the key to curing important diseases of our time.
  • In 2003, the Paul and Irma Milstein Laboratories were opened to conduct groundbreaking research in Alzheimer's Disease, diabetes and cancer.
