Long Island BioTech Assets
Long Island area is home to a number of world-class research organizations that have made seminal contributions to biotech as well as research branches of medical systems.
Founded in 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has shaped contemporary biomedical research and education with programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant biology and quantitative biology. Home to eight Nobel Prize winners, the private, not-for-profit Laboratory employs 1,000 people including 600 scientists, students and technicians.
Researchers in Brookhaven’s Biology Department seek to unravel and describe the complexities of biological systems—from how plants make oils and other products to the role of proteins in disease. Our work helps to develop the tools and techniques of biochemistry, molecular genetics, and structural biology.
Our researchers work to transform the treatment of conditions like lupus, arthritis, sepsis, cancer, psychiatric illness and Alzheimer’s disease. As the global headquarters of bioelectronic medicine, we’re exploring ways to raise the standard of medical innovation and are using electronic medical devices to signal the body to heal itself.
