  • Gift from Milstein family to support melanoma research | Newswire
    press conference to announce the creation of the Milstein Medical Research Program Howard Milstein s generous gift will enable Rockefeller University physician scientists to better understand the basic biology of melanoma in people a crucial step in the fight against this devastating disease says Rockefeller University President Paul Nurse We are enormously grateful to Mr Milstein for helping the university launch a major new initiative in melanoma aimed at finding more effective treatments A central aim of the Milstein Medical Research Program will be to create a new medical practice of skin oncology in which dermatologists will take a more central role in the long term management of patients with melanoma and serve as the primary caregivers creating a new model for actual practices In addition to administering standard or routine therapies for advanced disease Krueger envisions dermatologists performing clinical studies of new therapeutics in melanoma patients Melanoma is perhaps the most important disease treated by dermatologists especially as early recognition and surgical excision may be curative says Krueger It is our intention to get a much deeper understanding of disease pathogenesis including disease genomics and to use this information in the very near future to begin to engineer new therapies for melanoma Howard Milstein is chairman of New York Private Bank and Trust the largest privately held bank in the country as well as co chairman president and CEO of Emigrant Savings Bank He is also managing partner of Milstein Properties an investment builder active in both residential and commercial development founding chairman of the merchant bank FriedbergMilstein and chairman of MB Real Estate a commercial leasing and management company Milstein is a member of the board of overseers of Weill Medical College of Cornell University chairman of the American Skin Association chairman of the New York Blood Center
