COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y.—Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has received a $50-million gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons for the establishment of the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology, which will unite experts across several fields to support education programs and advance research into illnesses such as cancer, autism, bipolar disorder and depression.
