A Message from the Director

Eva-Feldman-DirectorEight Years of Progress

Here at the Taubman Institute, we are building on the momentum of eight productive and exciting years.

We currently are funding seven Senior Taubman Scholars, seven Taubman Scholars and 18 Emerging Scholars, who with our and your support are doing groundbreaking research that will have profound effects on the understanding and treatment of a range of diseases.

We also are working to create the collaborative environment that is one of the cornerstones of the Institute, where the exchange of ideas and creative interaction across disciplines are vigorously promoted. 

We also hold brown-bag lunches -- where members of all the Taubman labs get together to discuss their research – and the scholars regularly gather for “chalk talks” to share, discuss and debate their findings.

Throughout the coming months, I invite your continued interest in the work of the Taubman Institute. To keep up with our research and news from the laboratories, please bookmark our website at www.taubmaninsitute.org.

This is a very exciting era in the search for treatments of some of the most devastating illnesses that strike individuals and families.  With the commitment of our scientists and the sustained support of people like Alfred Taubman, we are moving forward in our quest to challenge head-on some of today’s most deadly diseases.
