Icahn Foundation Gives $20 Million for Genomics Lab

The Icahn Family Foundation has made a gift of $20 million to construct a state-of-the-art laboratory building on the Princeton University campus. Carl C. Icahn, the founder and president of the foundation, is a member of Princeton's Class of 1957. The Carl C. Icahn Laboratory will be home to Princeton's new interdisciplinary Institute for Integrative Genomics, and its sophisticated facilities will be designed to support pioneering research on genomics -- the study of genes and their function -- and related biological studies.
