The state of New York will provide $50 million dollars to help Cornell University build a new $80 million dollar Animal Diagnostic Center at the school’s College of Veterinary Medicine.    

The new center will conduct diagnostic testing and research on infectious diseases like swine flu, west nile virus, avian flu, chronic wasting disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy. The facility also will consolidate all of Cornell's existing diagnostic facilities.

The 126,000-square-foot facility will cost $80 million. Cornell will supply $24 million to the project but will still need to raise an additional $6 million. The center will be a Biosafety Level-3 capable facility.

Construction for the new center is scheduled to begin in early 2008 with completion anticipated for 2010.
