Welcome to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), where innovation meets the future. Join us as we embark on a journey into the heart of our audacious $500 million capital campaign, Foundations for the Future. At the core of this ambitious endeavor lies a visionary seven-acre expansion dedicated to pioneering research in three critical areas that will shape the world of tomorrow.

Our groundbreaking neuroscience research is poised to yield fresh insights into Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. With these state-of-the-art buildings, we’re pushing the boundaries of knowledge to unlock novel solutions that can change countless lives. Brilliant minds are exploring brain-body interactions, such as the role of neurons and the peripheral nervous system in cancer metastasis. Our goal: uncovering secrets that will lead to more effective treatments and improved patient outcomes. But we’re not stopping there. Our scientists are harnessing the power of the human brain to advance artificial intelligence. As technology evolves, we’re charting a course toward AI systems that can truly reshape the world.

Foundations for the Future isn’t solely about research. We’re also expanding our educational programs with a new Conference Center, a global hub where scientists from around the world converge. Here, they’ll unite through our Meetings & Courses Program, creating an environment of cross-border knowledge sharing and innovation. Together, we’re constructing the foundations for a brighter future. Join us as we strive to make the world a better place through the power of science.
