Whether you are a runner or you would like to raise money on behalf of our scientists running, please join us!

In addition to our community of supporters, scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) run the Long Island Marathon races to raise funds and awareness for their work in science to fight disease. Here are two examples of Team CSHL's finest:

Joshua Dubnau, Ph.D. is a neuroscientist at CSHL and will be running the 10K. His lab is investigating mechanisms of neurodegeneration that underlie ALS (aka Lou Gehrig's disease) and FTLD (frontotemporal lobar degeneration). The Dubnau group has developed a novel hypothesis that virus-like elements in our genome, retrotransposons, contribute to these disorders. They have evidence that retrotransposons of some brain cells might be responsible for causing cell death in ALS and FTLD patients.

Miriam Fein is a breast cancer researcher at CSHL and will be running the full marathon. Her lab's work addresses the challenge of separating functions and behaviors of the different components of tumors. They use models of breast cancer and real-time imaging of cells in tumors and stroma. This enables them to examine interactions between cancer and stromal cells in tumors during progression to metastasis, as well as effects after treatment.

Founded in 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has shaped contemporary biomedical research and education with programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant biology and quantitative biology. CSHL is ranked number one in the world by Thomson Reuters for the impact of its research in molecular biology and genetics. The Laboratory has been home to eight Nobel Prize winners. Today, CSHL's multidisciplinary scientific community is more than 600 researchers and technicians strong and its Meetings & Courses program hosts more than 12,000 scientists from around the world each year to its Long Island campus and its China center.
