Research Newsletter-Spring/Summer 2013


Michele Erickson
LPI Director of Development

The Linus Pauling Institute has made remarkable strides in recent years. 2013 marked the 17th year of LPI’s move from Palo Alto, California, to Oregon State University. We have achieved many of our benchmarks in those years, including the two most recent ones:

  • The Healthy Aging Program has fulfilled our vision to have five pre-eminent Principal Investigators working together to elevate the Institute to become a globally recognized authority in healthspan research.
  • LPI’s investigators are now under one roof in our new, state-of-the-art research facility—the Linus Pauling Science Center.

    To capitalize on this momentum, we turn now to setting the course for LPI’s next 15 years. At this pivotal moment, input from our closest friends, including you, is vital. We would be pleased to have you help us shape the vision for the Institute’s future.

    The pull-out response card in this newsletter provides two new opportunities for you to participate in this process. First, in an effort to expand our communication with you, we would like to include you in the group of our supporters who receive occasional email messages from Director Balz Frei and others at the Linus Pauling Institute about our work. We are also launching an LPI “blog” to bring you insights about our research discoveries, personalized messages from our principal investigators, and another way for you to offer your thoughts. Sharing your email address with us will help make you an insider with the Linus Pauling Institute.

    A second option on the response card invites you to support the Institute’s future with a planned gift. LPI’s Legacy Circle members are important participants in shaping a stable and sustainable future for the Linus Pauling Institute.

    All of us at the Linus Pauling Institute appreciate your dedication to our mission to conduct research and provide education to help people everywhere achieve healthy, productive lives and to prevent disease through nutrition, dietary supplements, and lifestyle. We hope you will enhance your relationship with us by returning the response card in this newsletter, enabling us to communicate in new and meaningful ways.

    LPI is grateful for the bequests we have received from the following friends this past year:
    Alice A. Winans
    Harold H. Plaut
    Helen M. Watkins
    Nancy J. Bradford
