The Long Island Real Estate Group (LIREG) is committed to supporting real estate projects that advance the mission of charitable organizations on Long Island. This October, they granted $100,000 to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) to advance the renovation of two cancer labs located inside CSHL’s historic McClintock building. The iconic building is named for Barbara McClintock, American scientist and cytogeneticist who joined the faculty at CSHL in 1942 and began studying the genomic role of transposons in evolution. Barbara was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize unshared. She lived and worked on the CSHL campus until her passing in 1992. The two labs in McClintock have not been updated in more than 30 years, and critical improvements are needed to advance the quality and functionality of the space. Thanks to the generous support of LIREG, these improvements are now underway.
