The Belfer Research Building
The research landscape at Weill Cornell is changing shape as we begin laying the foundation at the new Belfer Research Building. Located on 69th Street between York and First Avenues, the new 480,000 square foot building will include 16 program floors and become the hub for significantly expanded bench-to-bedside translational research initiatives.
What It Means for Weill Cornell:
- It took Weill Cornell 100 years to reach its current level of research space; now, with one new building we will double our capacity.
- It will accelerate research leading to breakthrough treatments and therapies for our most prevalent and deadly diseases.
- We will be highly competitive in available workspace for scientists.
What It Means for Prevention, Treatment and Cures:
- It will allow the College to recruit 30 or more additional top scientists
- Its open design will promote collaboration with Cornell faculty in Ithaca, and with other researchers across the country and the world.
- Its core facilities will house leading-edge scientific equipment in a shared space that will reduce technology costs.
- Its green design will add to a cleaner and healthier world.
“The Belfer Research Building will be an environment where our biomedical research scientists will work and engage in an intimate dialogue with our clinical departments. We will continue to be an academic medical center that practices medicine informed by innovation and committed to compassionate care."— Laurie H. Glimcher, M.D., Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean, Weill Cornell Medical College
