New York Medical College

Research

As an integral part of the College’s mission, research contributes to the advance of biomedicine and is essential to the intellectual atmosphere of a university.

Our aim is to advance health care through cutting-edge research—bench, clinical and population-based—that will lead to improved scientific knowledge.

Our goal is to become a leader in translational research—discoveries at the bench that will lead to improvements in the treatment and prevention of disease.

We continue to promote excellence in the education of healthcare professionals by making research a key component in graduate medical education.

New York Medical College is the leading academic biomedical research center between New York City and Albany, with nearly $34.5 million in sponsored research and other programs currently under management.

These programs are funded by the federal government including the National Institutes of Health, corporations and other sources.

Some of the most prestigious and respected biotechnology firms in the region call on the university to supplement their existing resources, find new platform technologies and explore product ideas. The College offers access to centralized research facilities commonly used in drug discovery and development. Biotech companies can interact with university scientists and use sophisticated research equipment at a fraction of the cost associated with development and/or purchase and maintenance.

University resources include core facilities for functional genomics, confocal and dual photon microscopy, electron microscopy, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry, molecular modeling, phosphorimaging, and protein structure. Also available are the laboratory animal complex, health sciences library, instrument and design shop, biosafety level-3 laboratory and stem cell laboratory. Students and residents have many opportunities for research during their clinical years.

The Office of Research Administration supports faculty researchers with a range of pre-award and post-award services. The research development program, now entering its tenth year, was established to strengthen the university’s research enterprise in areas of existing core strength with strategic overlap between the basic and clinical sciences.

Members of the faculty publish hundreds of clinical and basic science research every year.
