Robert Berne, NYU's senior vice president for health, said, "This grant is not only a great achievement in and of itself, it is also another demonstration of the more than century-long successful affiliation with HHC and our sustained and successful drive for excellence at the School of Medicine and throughout NYU: excellence in research, in clinical practice, in education, and in leadership."
The CTSI will be directed by Bruce N. Cronstein, MD, the Dr. Paul R. Esserman Professor of Medicine, professor of pathology and pharmacology, NYU School of Medicine, and co-directed by Judith Hochman, MD, the Harold Snyder Family Professor of Cardiology, NYU School of Medicine.
NYU Provost David McLaughlin said, "When scholars of distinction from different disciplines collaborate, the basic, applied, and translational research possibilities are powerful. That is why this grant is so impressive and such a source of pride for the University: it recognizes our researchers' talent, collaborative imagination, and entrepreneurial spirit."
The NYU-HHC CTSI will focus on three primary objectives:
