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.
