NYU Langone Health

NYU Langone Health is one of the nation's premier centers of excellence in health care and medical research, and provides a range of superb clinical care matched by few centers world-wide.

The Hospital

Tisch Hospital, an acute-care general hospital of 726 beds, contains important treatment and diagnostic units and is a focus for a wide spectrum of regional patient care programs.

NYU Langone's Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center provides the latest cancer prevention, screening, diagnostic, treatment, genetic counseling, and support services for patients.

The Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine is the world’s first facility devoted entirely to rehabilitation medicine. Founded in 1948 by Dr. Howard A. Rusk, the Rusk Institute is the largest university-affiliated center for the treatment of adults and children with disabilities, as well as for research and training in rehabilitation medicine. Rusk services are now offered at the new state of the art Ambulatory Care Center at 38th St and the NYU Langone Orthopedic Center at 38th Street.

The School

New York University, one of the largest private university in the United States, has been an outstanding public service history in health, education, and the arts. Founded in 1831, NYU comprises 13 schools and colleges at five locations in Manhattan. More than 40,000 students from all over the nation and 110 countries attend NYU.

The School of Medicine, founded in 1841, enrolls about 160 students each year. The histories of the School and Bellevue Hospital are replete with major discoveries, ranging from Austin Flint's description of heart murmurs, to Walter Reed's work on yellow fever, to the Nobel Prize-winning development of cardiac catheterization.

Smilow Research Center

NYU School of Medicine’s Joan and Joel Smilow Research Center was unveiled on May 25, 2006. The 13-story, state-of-the-art research facility is the first major addition to the campus of NYU Langone Health in more than a decade.  Smilow Research Center houses some 40 multidisciplinary research teams, a mix of current investigators and new recruits, dedicated to such fields as cancer, cardiovascular biology, neuroscience, dermatology, genetics, and infectious diseases. With more than 230,000 square feet of laboratory space, the Smilow Research Center is designed to enhance the interdisciplinary pursuit of translational medicine, which seeks to shorten the journey from laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside by fostering collaboration and synergy among researchers that, in turn, accelerate the development of new treatments.

We have started building our second science building next to Smilow with expected completion in 2018. The new science building will provide us more opportunities for collaborating our research with basic scientists.
