The newly-created partnership between Clarkson University and Saranac Lakes Trudeau Institute will receive $5 million from the state, a decision that will save about 80 jobs at the institute.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced the funding Monday. The money will be used to fund ongoing programs and operations at Trudeau while expanding the institutes research into pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and biomedicine.
Clarkson and Trudeau will work together to expand scientific research in the north country.
