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.
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.
