The Hess B. and Diane Finestone Laboratory in Memory of Jacob and Jenny Finestone, was first established in 1988.

A permanent endowment was created at McGill University devoted to the advancement of medical genetics. The specific objectives of the endowment are to a) fund research projects related to the field of medical genetics; b) fund trainees in the field of medical genetics; and c) publicize the field of medical genetics through the support of special lectures, visiting professorships and other appropriate means. Dr. David S. Rosenblatt has been Director of the laboratory since its inception.
