Welcome to the McGovern Center

Cornell's Incubator for Life Science Companies

The McGovern Center is designed to develop young Cornell life science companies. The Center is funded by Cornell’s Research Division, the Institute of Biotechnology, and a generous gift from Kevin M. McGovern '70 and his family.

The Center’s program focuses on accelerating research/development of its client companies’ technology/products, validating its client companies’ business plans, and strengthening its client companies’ management teams. 

The Center’s goal is to facilitate the forward progress of client companies to the point at which each will merit significant outside investment, and achieve self-sufficiency.

In doing so, the McGovern Center contributes to the University’s mission as New York State’s Morrill Land Grant institution to support local, regional, and state-wide Life Sciences jobs/economic development.

Admission to the Center is selective. Companies with life science technologies are invited to apply.

University, business, economic development, and community leaders welcome the McGovern Center’s first client at a reception at the Center Thursday, February 9, 2012, 4-6PM. Remarks by Cornell President David J. Skorton, and Svante Myrick, Mayor of Ithaca.
