Trudeau announces layoffs

Trudeau Institute in Saranac Lake is laying off scientists and support staff to help make up for a 25 percent drop in revenue for its research programs. Officials at the biomedical research center won't reveal how many of the Institute's roughly 130 employees will be losing or have already lost their jobs, although they say none of Trudeau's lead research teams will be affected. As Chris Knight reports, the Institute says it's been forced to cut its budget because federal stimulus money it received in 2009 has run out.  Go to full article

Trudeau Institute pledges long-term commitment to Saranac Lake

Residents in Saranac Lake and local, state and federal elected officials are breathing a sigh of relief today.

Leaving the Adirondacks was one of several options the Institute was considering as part of its strategic planning.

But as Chris Knight reports, there are still plenty of unanswered questions about the decision and Trudeau's future direction.  Go to full article

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
