Joseph & Bessie Feinberg FoundationA prolific supporter of charitable organizations throughout Chicago, The Joseph and Bessie Feinberg Foundation first partnered with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University in 2007. Along with her brother Joseph W. Feinberg and his wife Rhonda, Foundation President Janice Feinberg, PharmD, JD, has generously provided funding to advance Dr. Steven Rosen's research investigations as well as his leadership role at the Lurie Cancer Center, via the Director's Fund. The Director's Fund allows Dr. Rosen the freedom and discretion to annually address critical needs and help spark additional philanthropy. Distributions from the Director's Fund have been awarded to scientists pursuing novel ideas by supplementing a part or all of their annual expenses.
"The Feinberg Foundation is proud to support Dr. Steven Rosen and the Lurie Cancer Center, which we see as an investment in an exceptional Chicago institution that not only provides exemplary clinical care, but through the extraordinary collaborations established in both basic and translational research, leads the quest to overcome cancer," said Dr. Feinberg.
