In 1983 Paul Greengard came to Rockefeller, where he established the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience and served as founding director of the Fisher Center for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease.

" One day I was at a meeting [in California] and a professor named Gerald Edelman asked: "Do you want to spend the rest of your life living in New Haven?" I asked him to expand on that thought and he said that - he told me that we'd really like you to come to the Rockefeller to be on the faculty. And I loved Yale, I thought - I had a lot of very good friends on the faculty there. I thought I never would leave it. It's a wonderful community there, and it's got its own large cultural activities and so on, and a very helpful spirit, people helped each other.

But the reasons that I seriously considered and then accepted coming to Rockefeller involved - there were several factors." - Paul Greengard, Ora History
