Cold Spring Harbor, NY — Congressman Steve Israel and Assemblyman Charles Lavine held a press conference at CSHL on June 17 to announce their support for a NY State bonding initiative that would fund Alzheimer’s research, create jobs, and help the 5.2 million Americans suffering with the disease. CSHL Associate Professor Hiro Furukawa spoke about the critical need for public funding of Alzheimer’s research.

“CSHL has a robust research program for studying the brain—how healthy brains work and what goes wrong in brains that are sick,” said Furukawa. “I know that our work will make a difference in combatting diseases like Alzheimer’s and public funding for CSHL’s research on the fundamental biology of diseases like Alzheimer’s is critical to better diagnosis and treatments.”
