The lab “will help us stay at the cutting edge of scientific discovery and enable us to continue to recruit top faculty by providing them with the facilities they need to make transformative discoveries, ” said Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Rockefeller University’s president, said in the statement.

“The Rockefeller University is unique in that it attracts the best scientists from around the world and gives them the freedom and support to tackle the biggest questions in science, ” said Henry R. Kravis, who serves as a vice chair of the University’s Board of Trustees.

“Another hallmark of the University is its interdisciplinary and collaborative culture. These new laboratories have been designed to enable scientists to work seamlessly with colleagues both within and beyond their fields.”
