Our record of achievement is in a league of its own: 25 Nobel Prizes, 23 Lasker Awards, and 20 National Medals of Science. Nearly 50 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.
A common birthplace of new genes, the male testes are a hotspot for biological innovation. Within these organs, scientists have found a trove of virgin genetic sequences—and a better understanding of how evolution moves forward.
Researchers have shown that antibodies against Zika might be involved in causing birth defects in babies born to infected women. The findings might provide important caveats for the development of a vaccine.
Cell division is critical to creating and sustaining life. It’s also incredibly difficult to study. Now, advanced technology is enabling researchers to take their understanding of this process to the next level.
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.
