World-renowned mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli dedicated labs in November 1998 in memory of her brother Gabriele, a gifted violinist who died in 1997 after battling brain tumor illness.

Ms. Bartoli, who has become a dedicated fund-raiser for brain tumor research for the Department of Neurological Surgery at P&S, participated in the naming ceremony of the Gabriele Bartoli Brain Tumor Research Laboratory on Nov. 12. She addressed the gathering and announced the formation of the Gabriele Bartoli Endowment Fund, which she will chair. On the same day, Ms. Bartoli helped cut the ribbon on the Neurological Institute’s renovated fourth floor, which houses the Department of Neurological Surgery’s administrative and clinical offices. Ms. Bartoli shared the honors with Dean Herbert Pardes, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Faculty of Medicine, and Dr. Robert Solomon, the Byron Stookey Professor and Chairman of Neurological Surgery.
