Weill Cornell Medicine marked an extraordinary year in 2015, capped by launching a new name that exemplifies the unprecedented clinical growth, scientific advancement and educational accomplishments that have cemented the institution as a driving force in healthcare.
When Tracy Branick met Dr. Ted Schwartz, director of the Center for Epilepsy and Anterior Skull Base and Pituitary Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine, she was immediately put at ease. He was warm, kind and confident that he could help her treat the epileptic seizures that were affecting her daily life.
A significant gift to Weill Cornell Medicine’s leading precision medicine program by Caryl and Overseer Israel Englander will expand the scope of the institution’s approach to understanding and treating disease through therapies customized to patients’ unique genetic profiles.
One year after the doors of the Belfer Research Building have opened, the energy pulsating through the walls is as unmistakable as the talent of the researchers within them.
