The lab is located in Upper East Side of Manhattan. The Weill Cornell Medical College is in close proximity to Rockefeller University and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which offers a unique opportunity for scientific collaborations. Columbia University, NY Genome Center, Cornell-Tech and Google campuses are also within a very short commute. New York City (aka The City That Never Sleeps) is one the most exciting cities in the world and offers so much!
