Milestones

Meet Dr. John Leonard
During his twenty-five years at Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. John Leonard, the Richard T. Silver Distinguished Professor of Hematology and Medical Oncology, has been motivated by the same driving force: delivering the best possible treatments and cures to his patients.
Treatments and Cures to Patients
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.
Caryl and Israel Englander Institute for Precision Medicine
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.
Meet Nancy Paduano
In 1986, after Overseer Nancy Paduano’s young son had successfully recovered from brain surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, the question that she kept asking herself was, “How do you repay an institution that has saved your child’s life?”
Introducing Some of our Newest Recruits
The Belfer Research Building is home to some of the most innovative physician-scientists of our time. Some of our newest senior researchers in the Belfer building welcomed the opportunity to talk about their work and how it impacts patients.
A Clear Path to Discovery
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.
