New Center Will Support the Thriving Biotechnology, Research and Academic Community on Long Island
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today broke ground on the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Center for Therapeutics Research project on Long Island. The new $75 million initiative applies the Laboratory’s biomedical expertise to advance therapeutics for genetic diseases. CSHL is a world-leader in fundamental biology research with clinical care, and New York’s $25 million investment in the new Center for Therapeutics Research will support advancements already underway in breast cancer, leukemia, autism, obesity/diabetes, and lung cancer therapeutics.
“New York is a leader in next generation technology and sciences, and with the ground breaking of the new Center for Therapeutics Research in Cold Spring Harbor, we are supporting developments in research and medicine that will save lives,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Center will create new jobs, broaden our understanding of medicine and treatment, and secure Long Island’s place as a hub for life science research that will support a stronger, healthier New York for all.”
