Schumer presses to keep Trudeau Institute in Saranac Lake

Over the past few months, Saranac Lake's Trudeau Institute has been studying its options for future growth.

Consultants hired by the Institute have been evaluating several possibilities including expansion of the biomedical research institute's current facilities, the building a new clinical research site out of state or Trudeau leaving Saranac Lake for a new location - an option that has sparked concern among local residents and politicans.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer jumped into the fray Wednesday when he announced that he had called Trudeau director David Woodland personally last week to ask him and the Institute's board of trustees to keep Trudeau in Saranac Lake.

New Saranac Lake lab will push frontiers of disease research, cautiously

Yesterday we reported on the growth of the Trudeau Institute in Saranac Lake, which is adding three new research teams. Over the next few months, Trudeau Institute will certify its new research wing, named for former state Senator Ronald Stafford. Once it's brought on-line, the facility will be closed to the public forever. Even most of the Institute's staff won't be allowed inside. That's because the researchers working in the lab will handle some of world's deadliest diseases, including airborne strains of tuberculosis and influenza. Brian Mann was allowed a rare glimpse inside the lab and has our story.  Go to full article
