When the historic storm surge that accompanied Hurricane Sandy hit Manhattan, water inundated the basement of the Smilow Research Building at New York University (NYU). Thousands of laboratory mice housed in the building drowned, and valuable tissue samples were lost. For some scientists, the losses may set back their research by years.
As affected NYU scientists begin the process of rebuilding their programs and facilities, researchers who experienced losses during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Tropical Storm Allison in 2001 say that with time, community support, and planning, scientists and their programs and facilities can rebound to be stronger and more prepared for future disasters.
