Who are we?

Who We Are

Annual Hallmark Event

The Main Line Chapter’s annual hallmark event is the Night for the Fight. The evening is one of The Main Line’s premier events and is held each winter at a different, but always a spectacular, location. The evening is filled with philanthropy, fabulous food and spirits, dancing, and entertainment.

What We Do

Save A Life

What's new?

  • “When I was young I never dreamed of being a scientist until my father died of liver cancer when I was twelve years old. After his death, I chose to become a pharmacist to develop new, effective drugs to fight cancer and I initially pursued a bachelor’s degree in the field of biopharmaceutics at the Chinese Pharmacology University. During my last semester, however, my focus changed following an experience in Dr. Luo Lu’s lab at Shanghai Institute of Health Sciences.”
