NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Elie Hirschfeld Foundation announces the dedication of $100,000 to the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. The donation will support the medical research of scientists working in relation to cellular dynamics, adaptive immune response, molecular regulation, and cellular dynamics. The work currently being done is in relation to COVID-19.
“I am thrilled to be able to support the ongoing work of these physicians, via the Weizmann Institute,” said Elie Hirschfeld. “Viral immunology has never been more important than it is today.”
Ziv Shulman MD and Rony Dahan MD, and frequent collaborator Sarah Schlesinger MD of the Rockefeller University, are all specialists in viral immunology currently working on matters related to COVID-19. Dr. Shulman’s work is on the cellular dynamics and molecular regulation of the adaptive immune response, and Dr. Dahan’s work focuses on antibody effector functions in immunology and immunotherapy. Dr. Schlesinger chairs The Rockefeller University Institutional Review Board and the University’s Post Doctoral Education Committee. She collaborated for many years until his death with Nobel Laureate Ralph Steinman MD on the subject of dendric cells, which he discovered, to fight infectious diseases, like COVID-19.
