Over the last decade, Weill Medical College has experienced dramatic growth in the breadth and scope of its research enterprises. As part of its strategic plan and with the support of an unprecedented capital campaign, Weill Cornell's scientists have been responsible for ground-breaking advancements in areas across the scientific spectrum, including:

  • Biochemistry and Structural Biology
  • Cancer Biology
  • Cell and Developmental Biology
  • Gene Therapy, Genetic Medicine, and Stem Cell Research
  • HIV Research
  • Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology
  • Physiology, Biophysics and Systems Biology
  • Vascular Biology
  • Vision Research

To facilitate the translation of breakthroughs in these areas into new treatments for disease and to help develop their potential commercial use, the Medical College has established the new Office of Technology Development. Learn more

Recognizing the need to provide its faculty with the tools to conduct state-of-the-art research, Weill Cornell has developed 20 core facilities. These facilities – from biomedical imaging to x-ray crystallography – are managed by scientist experts. They provide centralized access to equipment used by faculty in all departments, help to reduce duplication of resources, and allow the Medical College to remain at the forefront of biomedical research.
