The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Association (CSHLA) held its annual meeting on January 14, 2021. The meeting, held via Zoom, was hosted by CSHLA President Kristin Olson Smith and featured a talk by Professor Lloyd Trotman on his prostate cancer research, entitled “Prostate Cancer: Finding a Needle in a Haystack”.
CSHL President and CEO Bruce Stillman updated the CSHLA on the Laboratory’s recent scientific and educational achievements. Highlights included the spring 2021 opening of the DNALC NYC flagship center in Brooklyn, the new chemistry program led by Professor John Moses, and the new NeuroAI program led by Professor Tony Zador.
Stillman acknowledged and thanked retiring Association directors Peter Klein, Debbie Parmet Sondock, and Heather Spehr for their service. He then welcomed the class of 2021—Debra Del Vecchio, Jack Kelly, Errol Kitt, and Rita Ranieri.
The CSHLA and its directors are instrumental in raising funds to support the Laboratory. Directors generously host outreach events and introduce friends and colleagues to CSHL to raise awareness of its cutting-edge research and education programs.
