Women’s Partnership for Science Luncheon Has Fifth Successful Year

Brooke Ellison, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a car accident at the age of 11, addressed a crowd of women who came to Peacock Point in Lattingtown (the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel P. Davison) from Manhattan, the Hamptons and all places in between for the Fifth Annual Women’s Partnership For Science Lecture and Luncheon on Saturday, June 17. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory President Bruce Stillman described her talk as “a fantastic exposition of why we should be supporting research. It gives a lot of people hope.”

The Women’s Partnership for Science at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory supports women who pursue careers in biomedical research through programs of extensive mentoring for professional scientists, graduate, undergraduate, high school and middle school students. The Partnership helps to instill inquisitive attitudes and to encourage women to pursue leadership roles by nurturing their capacity to achieve at the highest levels of science.
