Foundation donates to area hospitals for cancer research

This past summer, The Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation, Inc. donated $11,000 to area hospitals. Cancer centers in Buffalo (Roswell Park) and Rochester (Golisano Children’s Hospital) each received $5,000 for research. United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia received $1,000 towards the purchase of pediatric wheelchairs. Scott Pesiak, M.D., Ph.D. student at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, is seen here using the new state-of the-art workstation purchased with donations provided by the Foundation. This new workstation allows researchers to perform multispectral imaging analysis of cells in flow. Dr. Jim Palis noted that this workstation was able to process in eight hours which would normally have taken them more than a week to do.
