  • Supporting education, training and development of researchers who can conduct the investigations necessary to bring scientific advances to the public. Through the CTSI, established mentors will provide side-by-side partnerships with promising investigators, and training programs have been created to provide doctors with a strong foundation in basic research. Additionally, new scholarships have been created to assist aspiring scientists and physicians in receiving a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation.

  • Enhancing ties between NYU-HHC researchers and the community to more rapidly identify health problems and apply the knowledge gained to promote the use of new developments and evidence-based medicine within communities, thereby reducing healthcare disparities.

    Eight of HHC's 11 facilities will participate in the initiative including: The South Manhattan Network (comprised of Bellevue, Metropolitan, Gouverneur and Coler-Goldwater), Woodhull, Coney Island, Kings County and Lincoln hospitals.

    "I was proud to support New York University and the NYU School of Medicine's application for this CTSA award from the National Institutes of Health to advance medical research to help reduce medical disparities. What's particularly gratifying to me is the partnership between NYU and the City's Health and Hospitals Corporation, utilizing HHC's expertise and diverse populations at its eight participating facilities," Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney said. "This kind of collaboration is, in a way, the very future of health science."

    "The CTSI is a very welcome addition to our medical research and treatment resources," said New York City Council Member Dan Garodnick, who represents the NYU School of Medicine in the Council. "By helping researchers reduce disparities in health care across diverse communities, the CTSI will allow us to make important progress in improving the health of all New Yorkers. I look for
