Cocktails & Conversation at the Norwood Club
Members and friends of Einstein Emerging Leaders turned out recently for “Cocktails & Conversation,” an evening of socializing and learning about some of the exciting cancer research going on at Einstein. Held at the Norwood Club in Manhattan, the event benefited research at the Albert Einstein Cancer Center. Danielle Cohen Segal, EEL’s executive chair, welcomed the attendees and introduced guest speaker Teresa V. Bowman, Ph.D. Dr. Bowman is assistant professor of developmental and molecular biology and of medicine (oncology) at Einstein. She discussed her research on hematopoietic stem cell regeneration and the molecular origins of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a form of cancer that can result in leukemia. Dr. Bowman’s work may lead to new targeted therapies for MDS and leukemia. EEL executive board members Matt Makovsky, Amanda Sipala, Joseph Sipala, Joanna Steinberg and David Weinreb served as the event host committee.
