Sohn Conference Foundation
The Sohn Conference Foundation is dedicated to the treatment and cure of pediatric cancer.
The Foundation supports cutting-edge medical research, state-of-the-art research equipment, and innovative programs to ensure children with cancer survive and thrive.
Funding Innovative Research to Fight Pediatric Cancer
The Sohn Conference Foundation ensures that the greatest needs in the fight against pediatric cancer are met by identifying innovative research, equipping and encouraging the best scientists to actively research pediatric cancer, and providing children currently living with cancer with the care and quality of life programs that they deserve.
Honoring the Memory of Ira Sohn
The Foundation honors the memory of Ira Sohn, a talented Wall Street professional whose life was cut short when he passed away from cancer at the age of 29. In 1995, Ira’s colleagues and friends Douglas Hirsch, Lance Laifer and Daniel Nir, along with Ira’s mother Judith Sohn and brother Evan, created the Ira Sohn Research Conference, now called The Sohn Investment Conference.
The organization has evolved into The Sohn Conference Foundation. It is a leading funder in pediatric cancer research and care, having raised more than $50 million.
