NEW YORK – On October 16th, Andreas Dracopoulos, Co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), will be honored with the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Humanitarian Award at the 12th Annual NYSCF Gala and Science Fair, in New York.

The New York Stem Cell Foundation was founded in 2005, with the mission to cure the major diseases of our time through stem cell research. In addition to conducting innovative stem cell research in their own laboratories, NYSCF also supports and convenes global stem cell thought leaders and the broader stem cell community.
The SNF has supported NYSCF most recently via support for the organization’s new laboratories and headquarters, the NYSCF Research Institute in New York. The central corridor of the facility, which showcases NYSCF’s research developments, has been named “Τhe Stavros Niarchos Foundation Gallery”.
