This is an extraordinary time at NYU School of Medicine and our Medical Center. We have a heritage of innovation and we take deep pride in the passion, energy, dedication, and intellectual curiosity that our exceptional researchers bring to all that they do.
Startling new insights into the disease process are emerging in our studies, as we leverage a heightened level of collaboration between our scientists and an emphasis on translational research designed to lead to new therapies, diagnostics, and prevention. In fact, our research efforts continue to grow in size and scope. We have:
- HAD MORE than a 9.5 percent increase in NIH funding, bringing the total to over $165.7 million.
- BEEN AWARDED an $84 million NIH grant – the largest in our history – to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of the two major strategies for treating coronary artery disease.
- INITIATED plans for a new 350,000 square foot building dedicated to translational science and neuroscience, scheduled for completion in 2015.
