Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research Dedicated Today
Date:3/4/2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The new seven-story headquarters of the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT, where scientists and engineers are working together to pursue new ways to treat, detect and prevent cancer, will be officially dedicated today at 4 p.m.

The 365,000-square-foot building, designed by Cambridge-based architectural firm Ellenzweig, stretches along Main Street between Ames and Vassar streets, and houses 27 faculty labs and about 630 researchers, who began moving into the building in October 2010. Scientists and engineers work side-by-side in the new building, fostering collaborations between disciplines such as biology, chemical engineering, computer science, materials science and more.

"Under the leadership of Tyler Jacks, director of the Koch Institute, Koch researchers are cultivating frontier-breaking ideas at the remarkably fertile intersection of biology, engineering and the physical sciences," said MIT President Susan Hockfield.

Construction of the new building was made possible by a $100 million donation from David H. Koch '62, SM '63. That gift was announced in 2007 http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2007/koch-institute-1009.html.

"David Koch has supported MIT generously over many decades," said Hockfield, "and in this project he has been a true partner. I am grateful not only for his generosity, but also for the passion and insight he has brought to this ambitious undertaking."

"Of all of the things that I've done philanthropically,'' David Koch said, "playing a major role in the creation of this brilliant cancer institute at MIT is the one I'm most proud of. I hope that in time, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives, will be saved around the world because of therapies that originate here.''

The new Koch Institute joins a part of the MIT campus that has become a meeting g
