[IMGCAP(1)]NEW YORK CITY-Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has opened its 223,000-sf Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine/Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion. The five-story, $220-million facility is said to be the largest and most significant research building to be constructed in the Bronx in half a century.

The building houses 40 research teams, with 400 scientists, dedicated to translational medicine–a revolutionary “bench to bedside” approach that applies discoveries from the laboratory directly to patient care–that will drive the work at the Price Center/Block Research Pavilion, according to a prepared release. The building will house 40 state-of-the-art laboratories in addition to research support facilities and a 100-seat auditorium.

[IMGCAP(2)]The Price Center/Block Research Pavilion occupies 10 acres of land adjacent to existing campus buildings. The land is leased from the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation for 99 years. The building’s architect was Payette Associates and the construction manager was Tishman Construction Co. Further information was unable to be provided to GlobeSt.com by deadline.

The new building is named in honor of Michael F. Price and Muriel Block and her late husband Harold, who have made the two largest gifts in the 53-year history of the medical school. Price made a donation of $25 million toward the creation of the Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine at Einstein. The Price Center will be housed in the new Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion. Block’s gift, valued at $22 million, is the second largest donation ever received by the medical school.
