Brain and Mind Research Institute
Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) has established the Brain and Mind Research Institute directed by Dr. Costantino Iadecola, the Anne Parrish Titzell Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience.
A new entity with departmental privileges, the Institute provides a home for basic and clinical research focused on the brain and its diseases. Bridging the translational gap in the neurosciences is of paramount public health importance. Owing to a convergence of scientific knowledge and technology, it is widely recognized that brain sciences are on the verge of breakthroughs, which will have a transformative impact not only on our understanding of the inner workings of the brain, but also on neurotherapeutics.
With the Brain and Mind Research Institute, WCMC seeks to harness these dramatic advances to further enhance our position as a leading institution at the cutting edge of neuroscience research. Within the institute, basic and clinical neuroscientists will work side by side, sharing ideas, resources, and technology. The resulting synergistic interactions will set the stage for basic discoveries and advances elucidating disease mechanisms, as well as promoting new and more effective therapeutic approaches.
