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 Childrens Hospital) each received $5000 while United Memorial Medical Facility in Batavia received $1000 towards the purchase of pediactric 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 reseachers 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.
