Cornell University is receiving $25 million from the chairman of its trustees and his family to help recruit, hire and support life-sciences researchers, the university announced late Friday.
The donation, announced on the eve of commencement weekend, was termed by the university as a "pivotal new gift" in Cornell's initiative to improve and raise the profile of its life-sciences research and teaching. That initiative includes a 240,000-square-foot life sciences center on its main campus in Ithaca, scheduled to open later this year, hiring new faculty, and increasing collaborations among researchers and teachers in its various colleges. It includes not only traditional biology and human and veterinary medicine, but such fields as computer science and nanotechnology. To support it, Cornell has a fundraising campaign with the goal of $600 million under way.
