About Our Organization

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is a world-renowned, private research and education institution with research programs in Cancer, Neuroscience, Plant Biology, Quantitative Biology, and Bioinformatics & Genomics. The research environment is highly collaborative, allowing CSHL scientists to work together across disciplines to solve biology’s most challenging problems. The ultimate goal is to apply this research on basic biological mechanisms to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, neurological disorders and other diseases.

Research at the Laboratory is enriched by collaborations with scientists at other universities, hospitals, and in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors. Scientific interaction and exchange of new ideas within the institution's research community is enhanced by a robust Meeting and Courses program that attracts approximately 9,850 scientists from around the world each year to CSHL facilities on Long Island.  A new meeting venue in China attracts an additional 2,650 participants.

The innovative spirit, vision, and talent of the Laboratory’s scientists continue to place CSHL among the top 1% of life science institutions most cited in published research. The dynamic, collaborative environment at CSHL also fosters a superb educational experience for an outstanding group graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

A research duo finds that science and technology graduate students who turn away from academic careers do so because of changes in their own interests.

Students whose classmates are interested in science are more likely to think about a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, a new study says.
