Elisabeth R. Woods Foundation marks inaugural year


Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y. - In just their first year, the Elisabeth R. Woods Foundation has raised $27,000 to support lung cancer research in the laboratory of Dr. Raffaella Sordella at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL).

The Foundation was established in honor of Elisabeth Woods, wife of long time CSHL Association member and current director, James A. Woods. Elisabeth died in 2000 after a battle with non-small cell lung cancer. Elisabeth Leonard, Elisabeth Woods’ daughter and Executive Director of the Foundation, and her father visited Dr. Sordella and graduate student Debjani Pal in the lab recently to mark a successful first year of support.
