“I have made it my mission to find drugs for the prevention and cure of Alzheimer’s disease within the next 10 years,” declared Leonard A. Lauder, executive chair of the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, or ADDF, and chairman emeritus of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., at the organization’s fourth-annual fall luncheon and symposium, held on Tuesday at The Pierre hotel. “This is a disease we have to cure,” he said to the roomful of guests, “and we will, thanks to your help.”
The ADDF, Lauder points out, is “a pure play — every dollar goes to drug discovery and research.”
