Cornell Neurotech to Expand Ongoing Research

By JEANETTE SI A multi-million dollar gift from the Mong Family Foundation will fund the creation of Cornell Neurotech, a program which seeks to develop a new technological platform to better measure and provide images of the activities of the brain at the cellular level in real time. Stephen Mong ’92 MEN ’93 MBA ’02, the primary donor to Cornell Neurotech, said the initiative is meant to expedite and expand the currently ongoing neurological research in Cornell’s laboratories. “We would be developing a technological platform to enable scientists, researchers and engineers in the future to study the human brain,” Mong said. “Through our strength in imaging in engineering and our scientists in arts and sciences, we are already working towards studying the brain [within the University]. Now, we’re developing the…
