What was an old Cold Spring Harbor building in need of many repairs and updating will now be cancer therapeutics research center that will specifically focus on cancer metabolism and nutrition.

New York State funded $25 million of the $75 million that will go into the project.

"This is a really growing area in the United States and, in fact, in the Western world, the relationship between obesity and cancer," said Bruce Stillman, President and CEO of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. “And we hope to be able to understand this process and develop new therapeutics for treating cancer."

Many of the research and lab facilities across Long Island were also the recipients of state funding. This will enable them to play a critical role in the biomedical sector and create jobs on Long Island.
