New director named at Trudeau Institute


The prescience of what Trudeau is poised to accomplish seems promising to Goldfarb. 

“I voted with my feet. And I’m glad to have the opportunity at Trudeau,” he said.


The National Institutes of Health has awarded several new streams of funding, including a $9 million grant in June, to further research age-related decline in immune function.

Brewster said Goldfarb’s success in biotech research and delivery aligns with the institute’s future. The trustees’ decision to hire him was unanimous.

“We believe his talents and experience match the institute’s long, distinguished history. In addition to working closely with our faculty members, Ron will focus on revenue diversification strategies to ensure Trudeau’s successful transition into a new era,” Brewster said in a statement.

A nonprofit research center, Trudeau was founded in Saranac Lake in 1884 by Dr. E.L. Trudeau, who searched for the cause of and a cure for tuberculosis.

The institute still studies TB, along with many other immunological response mechanisms.
