It is with profound sadness that we announce the recent passing of our Founder and Co-Director, Dr. Norman Orentreich. Dr. O, as he was known to staff, was a visionary and a charismatic leader who brought a remarkable passion and energy to his work and research. An inspiration both professionally and personally, he will be dearly missed.
Since 2005, Dr. David Orentreich has served with his father as Co-Director of the Foundation. Now under his sole directorship, we will honor the life of Dr. O by continuing the mission he laid out on founding OFAS in 1961: biomedical research that prevents, halts, or reverses those disorders that decrease the quality or length of life.
