Dyson Foundation gives $5 Million for ophthalmology research at Weill Cornell Medical College

NEW YORK (May 23, 2007) -- The Dyson Foundation has given $5 million to Weill Cornell Medical College towards the Dyson Family Ophthalmology Floor in the Weill Greenberg Center, the new ambulatory care and medical education building. The new floor is expected to open in the spring of 2008.

"This new gift honors the memory of Margaret and Charlie Dyson, who were dedicated supporters of ophthalmology at Weill Cornell. We are very grateful for this gift, which will go a long way to support the new home for our state-of-the-art eye care for our patients," says Dr. Antonio M. Gotto Jr., the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornell Medical College.

"The Department is very grateful for this generous gift, which honors the exemplary clinical and research work of Dr. D. Jackson Coleman," says Dr. Donald J. D'Amico, chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College and ophthalmologist-in-chief at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. "Dr. Coleman, former chairman of the department, has had over 30 years of continuous funding from the NIH, holds 13 patents for inventions, and has published over 200 papers, 300 abstracts, 60 book chapters and two books. Dr. Coleman brought the department to the position it enjoys today."

Robert Dyson, president of the Dyson Foundation and son of the founders, states: "Almost 30 years ago, Dr. Coleman treated my mother for a detached retina. A lifelong friendship developed between our family and Dr. Coleman, and my mother became especially interested in eye diseases and vision problems. This led to the establishment of the Margaret M. Dyson Vision Research Center at Weill Cornell in 1989. This new grant represents our family's continued friendship with Weill Cornell and Dr. Jackson Coleman, as well as a memorial to my mother's efforts and interests."

"I am especially grateful to the Dyson family for this important gift, as it honors the memory of
