Letter from the Director

Bruce N. Cronstein, M.D. Director, NYU Division of Translational Medicine

The Division of Translational Medicine at NYU is the newest in the New York region and among the most active. Our mission is predominantly research: to conduct pharmacologically oriented investigations in our three laboratories and to carry that research to patients.

The interests of the division range from rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis and scleroderma, to liver disease, cancer, and wound healing. We are currently in the midst of carrying one of our investigations in wound healing from the bench to the bedside. We've identified a candidate compound that now is being tested in the clinic for the treatment of wounds in patients with diabetes.
