Create a legacy that will improve people’s lives through discovery

Today the Lab’s basic research discoveries are yielding translational opportunities that are sparing other families the tragic loss of a child.

Edith and Alan Seligson

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Helix Society honors the generous friends who inform us of their commitment to our research and science education programs by naming us in their wills or through other kinds of planned gifts. Members are invited to special events and recognized in CSHL publications.

Edith and Alan Seligson
Edith and Alan Seligson

“Our involvement with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory began when our world turned upside down with our son Andrew’s devastating diagnosis of neuroblastoma at age 17.

Our neighbor, Arthur Merrill, was acquainted with Nobel laureate Jim Watson, the Lab’s leader at the time. A decade earlier, Jim started a top-notch cancer research program with new National Cancer Act funding. One of his best hires was Bruce Stillman who has since succeeded Jim as the Laboratory’s president while continuing his own award-winning cancer research.

During our eight-year struggle, Bruce, Jim and other CSHL scientists were very supportive in our search to find the right treatments. Sadly, Andrew lost his fight in 1988.

Today the Lab’s basic research discoveries are yielding translational opportunities that are sparing other families the tragic loss of a child. We believe that our decades of research and fellowship support for M.D., Ph.D.s is hastening this progress, and our estate includes plans for Andrew’s continued legacy at Cold Spring Harbor.”
