From big events to new scientists and scientific breakthroughs, take a look back at all that has happened at The Wistar Institute in 2013.
Construction of the Robert and Penny Fox Tower at The Wistar Institute reached a milestone this weekend with the arrival on site of a massive construction crane. Steel girders and beams will begin arriving shortly and the tower will start to rise before the end of this month.
“With the Robert and Penny Fox Tower, we are building an entirely new Wistar, one better equipped to link basic science with medical practice,” said Wistar President and CEO Russel E. Kaufman, M.D.
The Wistar Institute, an international leader in basic biomedical research, today broke ground on a major expansion that will ensure its future at the forefront of cancer research and vaccine development.
