Science Interest Groups

The CTSI, as a part of its mission to promote and support innovation and collaboration throughout NYULMC and its partner institutions, is establishing research interest groups that are intended as nuclei for intellectual exchange among investigators with related interests (including those with an interest in translational aspects of their research). It is expected that these groups will foster future collaborations and help in the development of multiple-investigator funding initiatives.

Here is a list of the current research interest groups:

  • Ion Channels and Transporters Interest Group: The cross-disciplinary Ion Channels and Transporters Interest Group is intended as a nucleus for an intellectual exchange among ion channel researchers at NYU (including those with interest in translational aspects), to foster future collaborations, and to help in the development of multiple-investigator funding initiatives. The following link contains a list of all the labs and people participating in this group and information on future seminars, lectures and other events: Ion Channels and Transporters

  • Bone Interest Group: A growing number of investigators at NYU are probing aspects of bone metabolism. With the establishment of the Center for Skeletal and Craniofacial Biology, which includes researchers from the College of Dentistry, School of Medicine and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, there is increased opportunity for collaborative research and development of common cores. The Bone Interest Group provides an opportunity for investigators to share ideas and develop collaborations. The following link contains information on upcoming meetings: NYU Dentistry: Bone Science Interest Group

  • IBD Interest Group: The Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) Interest Group consists of basic and clinical researchers who meet monthly to discuss works in progress, clinically-challenging patients, and recent IBD literature. This group also works to develop infrastructure to facilitate IBD-related research.
