The Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Foundation has committed $100 million to The Rockefeller University. The foundation’s gift will be used to support a new research building on the University’s planned Stavros Niarchos Foundation–David Rockefeller River Campus.
“The new building and its laboratories will enable the University’s scientists to continue to push the boundaries of biomedical knowledge in important and exciting ways,” remarked Marie-Josée Kravis.
“Another hallmark of the University is its interdisciplinary and collaborative culture. These new laboratories have been designed to enable scientists to work seamlessly with colleagues both within and beyond their fields,” added Henry R. Kravis, who serves as a vice chair of The Rockefeller University Board of Trustees.
