With a $7.5 million gift from the Friedman Family Foundation, endowed by Stephen and Vice Chair Overseer Barbara Friedman, Weill Cornell Medicine has established an innovative cross-campus center dedicated to improving human health through research in the complex relationship between nutrition, inflammation and the development of disease.
With the aim of advancing pediatric research, a group of families and individuals at Weill Cornell Medicine has made it their mission to improve children’s health.
Twenty years ago, Weill Cornell Medicine took on the name of Joan and Sanford I. Weill, and launched a bright, new era of dynamic expansion, successfully propelling the institution to its position as a formidable leader in global healthcare.
Weill Cornell Medicine is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country, providing the best possible medical care to our patients, educating the health care leaders of tomorrow and speeding breakthrough discoveries from the lab bench to the patient bedside. At our core is a vision of physician-scientists working together, across disciplines, to accomplish these goals and continue providing world-class care to our patients, who are at the heart of our every endeavor.
With the recent opening of the state-of-the-art Belfer Research Building, we are positioned to greatly expand and accelerate our research program, bringing even more leading lights to our campus. We know that we are the right place and that this is the right time for Weill Cornell Medicine to be at the center of a transformation in medicine.
Weill Cornell Medicine continues to build on its track record of unprecedented growth. With a leading team of physician-scientists and the newest technology at our fingertips, we are perfectly poised to usher in a new era of personalized and 'tailored' medicine at our institution. We remain committed to keeping our students on the frontlines of medicine, and providing our faculty with the best opportunities and resources possible. As we look toward the future, there are myriad opportunities on the horizon.
Donors are the cornerstone of our work at Weill Cornell Medicine, helping us
lead the way in innovative treatments and pioneering research, pairing
medical education and the latest in technologies with a commitment to
compassionate and person-to-person care.
You are the agents of change in
advancing medicine and patient care.
