    • Directions
      From West: Take the Long Island Expressway (Route 495) east to Exit 41N toward Route 107/106. Bear to your right when the road forks to stay on Route 106. Travel approximately 4 miles (6.4 Km) north to Route 25A. Make a right, and travel east for 4 miles (6.4 Km). A sign marking Bungtown Road precedes the entrance to the Laboratory. Make a left at the traffic light. You will see a lighted CSHL sign and a large gold Victorian house by the entrance. You have gone a little too far if you pass route 108.

      From East: Take the Long Island Expressway (Route 495) west to Exit 44N which is the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway (Route 135) north. Take Exit 14E toward Woodbury. Turn Right onto Jericho Turnpike (NY-25 E). Make a left onto South Woods Road and follow to its end. Make a right onto Cold Spring Road and merge onto Route 25A eastbound. A sign marking Bungtown Road precedes the entrance to the Laboratory. Make a left at the traffic light. You will see a lighted CSHL sign and a large gold Victorian house by the entrance. You have gone a little too far if you pass route 108.

      From South: Take Southern State Parkway to the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway (135) north. Go to exit 14E Jericho Turnpike. Make a left on South Woods Rd. and take that to its end. Make a right on Cold Spring Rd. and merge onto 25A going east. A sign marking Bungtown Road precedes the entrance to Cold Spring Harbor Lab. Make a left at the traffic light. You have gone a little too far if you pass route 108.

      Directions to Human Resources: Once you enter the CSHL campus proceed straight ahead to the stop sign.  Approximately 100 feet after the stop sign, you will come to a fork in the road.  Bear right and drive to the harbor.  You will now be facing the harbor.  Make a right turn.  The harbor will now be on your left. Go to the third building on your right (beige building with green trimming).  The name of the building is David & Fanny Luke. Parking is available in front of the building.

    • Disease Research

      Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory use a multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach to investigate questions with relevance to the following diseases:

      Alzheimer's disease
      Researchers at CSHL are working to understand the cellular mechanisms involved in the development of Alzheimer's and find therapeutic ways to prevent the neuronal damage associated with the disease. 


      New technologies and software developed at CSHL have been used to scan and analyze genomes in an effort to understand the genetics of autism. Discoveries about variations in human genome structure, particularly gene copy-number variations, have been especially revealing. Read More


      Bipolar disorder and Depression
      Dysfunction at neuronal synapses is thought to play a major role in these psychiatric disorders. Recent technological breakthroughs are helping CSHL researchers investigate disease-related synaptic changes in relevant brain circuits and gain insights into mechanisms that can be used to modify disease-related behavior.


      At CSHL, which was designated as an NCI Cancer Center in 1987, scientists focus on understanding the underlying causes of cancer, and developing biochemical and genetic tools to diagnose and treat the disease. CSHL scientists are committed to improving the diagnosis and treatment of several different cancer types, including: brain, breast, cervical, colon, leukemia, liver, lung, lymphoma, melanoma, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate and rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS).  Read More


      Parkinson’s disease
      This research program aims to understand the genetic and molecular basis of the neurodegeneration seen in Parkinson’s patients and to develop new modes of therapy. Read More


      Genetics is known to play a large role in the causation of schizophrenia, and research at CSHL has sought to clarify that role, as well as understand in detail the relationship between specific genetic anomalies and their impact on the biology of the brain. Read More
      Spinal muscular atrophy and other muscular dystrophies
      CSHL researchers have exploited their insights into the cellular mechanism of RNA splicing to develop therapeutic strategies to correct the underlying molecular defects that cause these diseases. Some of these potential therapeutic targets are now in pre-clinical testing.

      CSHL’s main campus spans approximately 120 acres along the western shore of beautiful Cold Spring Harbor on the north shore of Long Island. We are located 35 miles east of New York City. Historic architecture, sweeping vistas of the harbor, magnificent trees and flowers, and intriguing art and sculpture make our campus unique.

      Within five miles of the main campus are the 45-acre Banbury Conference Center, the 12-acre Uplands Farm Agricultural Field Station, the Genome Center in Woodbury, and the Dolan DNA Learning Center in the village of Cold Spring Harbor.

      Researchers visiting, working and living here describe CSHL as a sanctuary where they can pursue cutting-edge science amid nature’s timeless beauty. The general public can also experience knowledge and nature at CSHL by taking a tour or participating in our concert & lecture programs.

    • Fellows

      The CSHL Fellows program is an excellent opportunity for outstanding young scientists who have recently received their Ph.D. or M.D. degrees to pursue a period of independent research before taking a faculty position. Fellows direct their own research program under the guidance of a senior faculty member. They have their own laboratory space and technician, as well as access to all of the resources of the Laboratory. Fellowship appointments are for three years with the possibility of an extension of one-two years for exceptional Fellows.

      The Laboratory is internationally known for its highly interactive and stimulating environment. It’s Meetings and Courses program brings over 7000 scientists to the campus each year, presenting Fellows with the opportunity to hear the latest research findings in a wide range of fields. Fellows also have the unique opportunity to meet and to network with these visiting scientists. The Fellow program has been much valued for providing the opportunity to establish strong independent research programs without administrative burdens, as well as the opportunity to establish valuable collaborations.

      Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is proud of its rich tradition in training and nurturing young scientists and has a deep commitment to their success, as can be measured by the accomplishments of our distinguished alumni and current Fellows.

    The Cancer Center at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is a research facility devoted to understanding the fundamental biology of cancer, particularly human cancer. Funding from the NCI supports 10 Shared Resources, which provide specialized, state-of-the art equipment and techniques to all CSHL scientists at a reasonable cost. These facilities are continually updated and revised as technology and research needs change. 

    In addition to these scientific resources, the Laboratory has an Information Technology Department to provide basic computer support, and a Graphic Arts Department to assist in preparation of artwork for publications, presentations and posters. Centralized tissue culture facilities are set up in several of the Laboratory’s buildings.
