Centers and Institutes

The ASCI was established in 2004 and brings together world-class physician-scientists from diverse areas of biomedical research to explore the intricacies of stem cells—the primitive, unspecialized cells with an unrivaled capacity to form a variety of cells, tissues and organs in the body. The Institute attracts many of the best and brightest young researchers in the field, who are committed to taking a bold path to redefine the possibilities of medicine and speed breakthrough discoveries from the lab bench to the patient bedside.

The Cardiovascular Research Institute is dedicated to understanding the molecular, cellular, and genetic underpinnings of cardiovascular disease, with the goal of improving heart health for patients worldwide.

The Caryl and Israel Englander Institute for Precision Medicine is a translational research hub, which opened under the direction of renowned pathologist and prostate cancer expert Dr. Mark Rubin. The IPM team includes clinicians, basic scientists, pathologists, molecular biologists, and computational biologists. These physician-scientists are directing their collective expertise and wealth of knowledge to pinpoint the molecular underpinnings of disease and spur the discovery of novel therapies.

The mission of the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Microsurgery is to provide state-of-the-art compassionate care for the infertile couple. To advance this goal, the center carries out basic and clinical research in male reproduction, trains residents and fellows, and provides educational programs for professionals as well as the public.

The CRM is committed to the highest academic and scientific standard in patient care and biomedical research. CRM offers comprehensive fertility services in a state-of-the-art setting. 

The Center for Research on End of Life Care was established in 2014 to improve the quality of life and care provided to patients and families confronting life-threatening illness and death.

The Center’s mission is to improve our understanding of the biologic properties of the Hepatitis C virus and identify new treatments for this disease. 

The Center connects vascular biologists from Weill Cornell and neighboring institutions. Weill Cornell vascular biologists use modern tools of biomedical research to investigate the structure and function of vessel wall cells. 

The CTSC aims to provide an environment that allows optimal use of our multi-institutional assets and our diverse patient population to move translational research from bench to bedside and to the community. 

The core mission of the Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) is to advance the recognition and treatment of brain disorders by elucidating their fundamental mechanisms and translating these advances into novel preventive and therapeutic strategies for patients. The BMRI is committed to training and mentoring the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists working in the neurosciences.
