Mrs. Roslyn Goldstein of the Leslie and Roslyn Goldstein Foundation in New York has joined the Lupus Research Institute Board of Directors.
“Research has to be innovative,” explained Mrs. Goldstein, who with her husband, Leslie Goldstein, has generously funded medical research since creating their family foundation in 1980. My husband and I have been very fortunate and thus I feel that we have an obligation to give back to society,” she said. “The way we can do this is by supporting biomedical research.”
For the couple, research isn’t seen as charity. They see it as a “benefit, the way to make a difference in the lives of their children, grandchildren and future generations,” she said.
“Although lupus has not affected me personally, I believe that lupus affects everyone. The novel research funded by the Lupus Research Institute is key to scientific discoveries in immunology and autoimmunity. I am very pleased to be involved in this vital cause.”
