MSKCC received record gift of $100 million from Mortimer B. Zuckerman for cancer research facility

NEW YORK -- Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) today announced a major commitment from publisher, real estate developer, and MSKCC Board member Mortimer B. Zuckerman of $100 million from his charitable trust toward Memorial Sloan-Kettering's new cancer research facility, including a 23-story laboratory structure that opens this month. Mr. Zuckerman's donation is the largest single commitment by an individual in Memorial Sloan-Kettering's history.

When completed, the 693,000 square-foot complex will accommodate a near-doubling in the size of Memorial Sloan-Kettering's research enterprise.

In recognition of his generosity, MSKCC's Boards of Overseers and Managers plan to name the building "The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center."

Mr. Zuckerman was elected a member of Memorial Sloan-Kettering's Board of Overseers in 1991. A native of Canada who holds degrees from McGill University, McGill Law School, The Wharton Graduate School of Business, and Harvard Law School, Mr. Zuckerman is chairman and editor-in-chief of U.S. News and World Report, publisher of the New York Daily News, and the founder of Boston Properties, Inc., one of the largest owners and developers of office properties in the United States. He is also a former associate professor of city and regional planning at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

"The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center gives vivid physical expression to this institution's role as a leader in cancer research," said MSKCC President Harold Varmus, MD. "The configuration of its laboratories and other spaces will encourage interactions that are critical to productive collaborations among basic scientists and clinical investigators. We are fortunate to have someone like Mort who recognizes the essential connection between scientific discoveries and advances in patient care."

The new building, which includes 16 laboratory floors, is located on East 68th Street between First and
