It's named after couple who gave a very generous donation to the school. Sandra and Edward Meyer gave $75 million dollars to Weill Cornell Medical College to enhance and expand the medical college's cancer research and care programs.
In honor of that generous gift, Cornell will now name its flagship building in New York City after the couple.
This is the Meyer families first gift to the medical college.
