2017 Harrington Scientific Symposium


Date + Time

  • May 23 - 24, 2017

    4:10 pm - 4:10 pm

World leaders in science, medicine and academia gathered in Cleveland in late May 2017 to learn from and inspire their colleagues during the Harrington Discover Institute’s Fifth Annual Scientific Symposium. Thirty-five Harrington Scholars from across the U.S. and the U.K. were among the guests attending the two-day symposium. The Keynote Lectures were given by Nobel-Prize winning physician Joseph L. Goldstein, MD and FDA Commissioner 2016-2017 Robert M. Califf, MD, MACC.

Along with his colleague Michael S. Brown, Dr. Goldstein won the Nobel Prize in 1985 for discovering the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor and determining how the receptor controlled cholesterol homeostasis. Over 400 people attended the lecture at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium followed by Dr. Califf’s remarks at dinner.

Among other presenters at the symposium were Andrew I. Schafer, MD, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Roger Stein, PhD, Financial Engineer, MIT Sloan School of Management. Many leaders of American medicine were also at the symposium, as well as two of the three 2017 Harrington Prize winners, Daniel J. Drucker, MD and Joel F. Habener, MD.
