Biology prof displaced by Allston slowdown leaving Harvard

Add to the list of people unhappy about Harvard's slowdown in Allston the molecular and cellular biology professors being moved out of their long-time laboratory space in Cambridge. The Crimson reports that Tom Maniatis, one of the founders of modern molecular cloning, plans to leave Harvard to chair Columbia’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics. Other professors are also concerned about the disruption of a relocation and "the administration’s failure to consult them regarding the logistics of the move."
