Since the launch of NYU Long Island School of Medicine in 2019 and the merger of NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island into one of the country’s premier healthcare systems, NYU Langone Health, we have continued to enhance and expand our commitment to research. We are in a transformative era, as new research initiatives in basic and clinical science and pragmatic approaches to health services research help improve outcomes for patients.
Our visionary and robust biomedical Research Institute is home to newly recruited basic, clinical, and health services researchers who complement the work of current investigators. The institute, which serves as the umbrella for research on our Long Island campus, is closely aligned and integrated with research programs across the NYU Langone Health system. Our Department of Foundations of Medicine serves as an academic home for campus faculty researchers.
Our school’s collaborative environment nurtures creative, independent thinking; the opportunity to share insights and ideas; and extraordinary teamwork that is extended through collaborations across NYU Langone. Multidisciplinary scientists and physician–investigators are involved in vigorous clinical research studies and basic, translational, and health services studies of the causes, treatments, and consequences of a wide spectrum of illnesses. These include as a major focus diabetes and its treatment, as well as its associated conditions such as obesity. Diabetes and its complex complications touch a large group of patients in virtually every medical specialty.
Investigators are also addressing other important public health issues, including pregnancy and premature births, improving cancer treatment, vascular damage, autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders, obesity, COVID-19, and other debilitating diseases.
Our basic, clinical, and health services researchers are conducting and developing new studies in areas that can have a significant impact on public health. The collective goal is to improve and solve major public health problems with cutting-edge scientific discoveries, which are transformed into relevant clinical practices at the patient’s bedside and, ultimately, kindle outcomes that reduce the community’s burden of disease. In sum, our goal is research that makes a difference.
