Our record of achievement is in a league of its own: 25 Nobel Prizes, 22 Lasker Awards, and 20 National Medals of Science. Over 40 percent are members or foreign associates of the National Academy of Sciences.
Rockefeller has a strong tradition of translational science—nearly half of the university’s laboratories conduct studies on human subjects. The exceptional resources at The Rockefeller University Hospital allow our scientists to conduct clinical research that would be difficult to do anywhere else.
Risca explores the three-dimensional structures that organize and support DNA, and the biochemical rules that govern the organization of the genome. She will join Rockefeller as an assistant professor on January 2, 2019.
Researchers describe, for the first time, the structure of a smell-receptor protein common among insects. Its inner architecture illuminates how insects evolved to detect an amazing diversity of odors.
Scientists describe a group of proteins that protect cells from a subtype of human papilloma virus. They also outline genetic mutations that make this virus unusually harmful in people with epidermodysplasia verruciformis, a rare skin condition.
Academic lectures, symposia, and events provide an opportunity for Rockefeller scientists to share their research and celebrate the achievements of faculty and colleagues from outside the Rockefeller community.
Programs include the Monday Lecture Series, the Friday Lecture Series, the Special Seminar Series, and more.
