Bandwidth
Although the site has been optimized to function on a dial-up connection (excluding the video segments), it is recommended to view the site on a cable or DSL connection. The video segments will play from a dial-up connection; however, you may encounter substantial download times.

Ad Blockers
We want to alert our visitors to potential complications of Pop-up Ad Blocker software. Newer versions of certain Internet browsers have Ad Blocker software as part of their standard configuration. Some visitors will add Ad Blocker software from a third party source or may have such software as part of a local network. If your Ad Blocker software is configured too tightly, certain pages on this and other Web sites will not load, appear correctly or function as designed. In these instances, you can temporarily turn off your Ad Blocker software or, if you cannot do that, we always provide an alternate link to these sections of the Lasker Web site

If you need any help with these features, please email the Lasker Foundation Webmaster by clicking here.
