Clinical Research and The Rockefeller University Hospital
An exchange of ideas between fundamental research and clinical investigation is at the core of Rockefeller’s mission. The Rockefeller University Hospital serves as a crucial link between bench and bedside.
Rockefeller is an oasis of science. I had a very profound feeling about it from the moment I stepped onto the grounds. You have the freedom to follow your instincts and be creative. I love that and I thrive here.
Jean-Laurent Casanova, M.D., Ph.D.
We come here with ideas, with a vision, and are given the autonomy to follow our instincts. Rockefeller allows us to do the transformative science that we anticipate will have an enduring impact on the well-being of our world.
Protein clumps are routinely found in the brains of patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Now researchers find a link between this buildup and the intracellular movement of proteasomes, molecular machines tasked with degrading protein waste inside cells.
