With roots firm in Saranac Lake, Trudeau Institute looks to reorganize, grow

Listen to this story
As we've been hearing, local leaders in Saranac Lake hope to develop the village into a biomedical hub. Back in February, the Trudeau Institute - one of the country's top immunology labs - committed to keeping its main campus in the community.

That decision, which followed weeks of controversy, left a lot of unanswered questions about Trudeau's future. The lab faced a major budget crunch this winter which forced the organization to cut support staff. It's also unclear how the facility can invest in the high-dollar equipment and technology needed for top-tier research.

Brian Mann sat recently down to talk in-depth with David Woodland, who heads the Trudeau Institute and also leads one of its research teams. Woodland says the lab is considering a major reorganization, that could include new for-profit ventures, as well as possible construction of a new campus in Saranac Lake for other biomedical companies.
