The biomedical research carried out in the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine grows evermore dynamic and expansive. The consistently increasing funding we receive each year speaks to the breadth and scope of the research enterprise in our department. Our laboratories continue to be upgraded and facilities are state-of-the-art. Construction will begin this year on a new, 400,000-square-foot Biomedical Research Building on the medical center campus of East 69th St. Led by Principal Investigator, Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley of the Weill Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell was among the first groups of institutions nationwide to receive a $49 million NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). Major collaborative research partnerships and joint research training programs continue to expand with our neighboring institutions, Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), as well as the Ithaca campus of Cornell University.

A number of our physician-scientists have received honorary awards in recognition of groundbreaking discoveries. Such discoveries emerge from arduous work at the bench and in clinical research with patients. Through our collective commitment to excellence in research, we continue to attract world-renowned faculty, educate tomorrow's physician-scientists, and provide our patients with the best that medicine has to offer.
