The campus's research centers are:
Weill Medical College
The college's own research laboratories have been completely renovated in recent years, increasing laboratory space by more than 25%. The eight stories of new laboratories in the Whitney Pavilion were completed in 2000 and serve as home to three major centers of advanced research in Structural Biology, Neuroscience, and Genetic Medicine.
The Rockefeller University
Home to the 1999 and 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine, is one of the world's premier biomedical research institutions. Founded in 1901, this graduate research university is centered around 75 laboratories working in a broad range of fields, including molecular and cell biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, structural biology, biophysics and biochemistry.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Established in 1884, is the world's oldest and largest private institution devoted to prevention, patient care, research, and education in cancer. It is generally considered the top center in the country, or indeed the world, for cancer care.
The Hospital for Special Surgery
Founded in 1863, was the first institution in the United States dedicated to the treatment of orthopedic conditions. Specializing in orthopedics, rheumatology and sports medicine, and now graced by a completely new hospital building, HSS is one of the world's premier centers for research and care in these areas.
In addition to serving as Cornell's main site for clinical teaching, the Hospital is home to a wealth of clinical research in virtually all areas of medical science. Among its many programs are numerous "Centers of Excellence" in gene therapy, reproductive medicine, burns, vascular medicine, women's health, complementary medicine, minimal access surgery, and many other areas.
