Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the inaugural grant recipients from the New York Fund for Innovation in Research and Scientific Talent, a $15 million medical school capital funding program to encourage recruitment and retention of exceptional life sciences researchers focused on translational research by supporting the establishment or upgrading of their laboratories. Translational research builds on basic scientific research to find new ways to diagnose and treat medical conditions. This year's recipients include Columbia University and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, both in New York City, and the University of Rochester in the Finger Lakes. Each institution has recruited a top life science researcher whose lab will benefit from the NYFIRST award.
