The Parents & Science initiative is a unique resource for parents and educators who want to learn more about how scientific research is transforming our understanding of childhood and adolescent health and behavior.

Welcome

The Rockefeller University’s Parents & Science Initiative was launched to:

  • Create a forum for parents and educators to learn more about how scientific research is impacting our knowledge of childhood development
  • Showcase Rockefeller scientists whose investigations are contributing to the knowledge and treatment of childhood diseases
  • Support Rockefeller University’s RockEDU Science Outreach programs
  • Bring together Rockefeller investigators with childhood health experts, policy makers, physicians, and psychologists to address issues of concern relative to the well-being of children and adolescents

Your gift to the Parents & Science Discovery Fund supports complimentary lectures for parents and educators, Rockefeller investigators who are exploring human development and childhood diseases, and the University’s year-round, hands-on RockEDU Science Outreach programs for K–12 students and educators.
