In-Person & Online

Show Up for Patients

October 11, 2022 | 6:00 PM ET In Person at Hearst Tower | 7:00 PM Online Worldwide

Our theme of “Show Up for Patients” is in tribute to hopeful patients and their loved ones, who motivate our research every day. This year, we invite you to make your contribution in honor or memory of a patient or caregiver in your life. During the dinner and our virtual program, our digital “Patient Heroes Wall” will feature e-journal tributes and a scrolling list of all honorees’ names. Click here to learn more.

We are also proud to recognize three “Stem Cell Heroes” for their longstanding partnership with NYSCF, and tremendous contributions to patients through science, medicine, and media:

Sanjay Gupta, MD
Neurosurgeon and CNN Chief Medical Correspondent

Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, DPhil
Oncologist and Pulitzer-Prize Winning Author

Irving Weissman, MD
Stem cell pioneer and Founder, Forty-Seven Inc.

Your partnership makes our work possible, as NYSCF leads the way toward better treatments and cures for our loved ones and patients everywhere.
