Massachusetts: AIDS Center's New Labs Debut; U.S. Cuts May Slow Hunt for a Vaccine
March 12, 2013
On March 11, the Ragon Institute, funded by "software magnate" Phillip Terrence Ragon, opened a new $30 million research facility that is designed to facilitate collaboration among physicians, physicists, and engineers in developing HIV vaccines and studying TB. The 75,000-square-foot Cambridge, Mass., building, which now houses 175 staff members, is large enough to allow the staff to double in size and to accommodate visiting scientists as well. Philanthropists Mark and Lisa Schwartz will provide $50,000 grants to outside scientists, which will enable them to participate in the Ragon Institute's research.
