Daniel Loeb and Margaret Munzer Loeb established the Ronald M. Loeb Center for Alzheimer's Disease in honor of Daniel's father, who died in 2012 after an eight-year battle with the disease. The Loebs collaborated with CEO and President of the Mount Sinai Health System, Kenneth L. Davis, MD, to create a center with a multidisciplinary approach that brings together some of the best minds in Alzheimer's research, stem cell research, and genomics.
"It is an honor to establish this center in my father's memory to support groundbreaking work in Alzheimer's disease research," said Daniel. "When my father was sick, I learned how painful this illness is for those afflicted and their families. I also recognized that there is little hope for patients today beyond slowing the progression of Alzheimer's. We urgently need more resources to find a cure or effective prevention."
Daniel Loeb is CEO of Third Point LLC, an asset management firm headquartered in New York, which he founded in 1995. He is a Trustee of the Mount Sinai Health System, as well as the United States Olympic Committee, the Manhattan Institute, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and Students First New York. Mr. Loeb is also the Chairman of the Board of Success Academies Charter Schools and has been a Trustee of Prep for Prep since 2004. He has been a significant supporter of LGBT rights through the Human Rights Committee and numerous political and judicial initiatives. He is a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Daniel and Margaret live in New York City with their three children.
