Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine

Through innovative research projects, our scientists decode the molecular underpinnings of health and disease.

At NYU Langone Health’s Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine, renowned faculty scientists pioneer methods of characterizing the molecular function of living organisms. Our studies result in breakthrough findings that enable us to solve pressing biomedical problems and advance healthcare.

Our facilities are fertile ground for multidisciplinary collaboration, paving the way for important discoveries in areas such as autoimmunity and origins of allergic diseases; models for host–pathogen interactions in inflammatory disease and models for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases; the molecular basis for antidepressant function; and neural differentiation, synapse formation, and neural networks.

Our accomplished research teams include trainees in our specialized educational programs, who perform hands-on research in modern faculty laboratories.
