Construction of State-of-the-Art Research Center Begins This Fall

Aug 12, 2004 — Construction of a new research facility will begin this fall, signaling a new era of scientific advances at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 11:00 am for The Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine and The Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion at Einstein’s Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus in the Bronx.

The 201,000 square-foot building will house 40 state-of-the-art laboratories, nine shared or core facilities, and a 100-seat auditorium. Each floor will be an “open laboratory” in which biomedical researchers can consult one another, fostering collaboration among Einstein’s own investigators and those at other institutions.

The new facility is expected to impact various areas of medicine from cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease to neurological impairments, genetic disorders, and Alzheimer’s disease.
