About the Fisher Center Foundation (From the website)

Our team of internationally renowned scientists, under the direction of Nobel laureate Dr. Paul Greengard, has been at the forefront of seminal research that has provided the conceptual framework for modern day investigations into Alzheimer’s disease.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research at The Rockefeller University, headquartered in New York City, collaborates with the other leading research institutions around the world in the global pursuit for the cause, care and cure of Alzheimer’s disease. Of the money raised, only 9 cents out of every dollar is used for our operational overhead expenses.
