Remembering George Abramson

We would like to take a moment to honor our supporter, George Abramson. Born in 1920, George made a career in the world of mergers, acquisitions, and investment banking; he was involved in the 1965 high-profile merger of Pepsi with Frito Lay. Throughout his life, George's passions included health, diet, and exercise, with a particular emphasis on anything with the potential to slow down the aging process. He pursued these interests with great enthusiasm and managed to stay well-connected with multiple academic institutions into his later years, often flying off to meet the research teams at places like Duke University, Ohio State, and Michigan. Known to those around him as a fun-loving, charming man, George enjoyed his life in Vero Beach, Florida.

George passed in February of last year, and he graciously remembered SENS Research Foundation and a dozen other research institutions in his will. We will miss his passion for our work and his tremendous support.
