NYU Winthrop Celebrates Groundbreaking of New Research Institute

With its deep commitment to medical education and research, NYU Winthrop successfully blends the progressive philosophy, sophistication and advances of a teaching and research institution with a very personal approach to patient care. The Hospital’s longstanding academic mission was strengthened in 2011 when NYU Winthrop became a Clinical Campus of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, educating 80 third- and fourthyear medical students each year, and making NYU Winthrop the only Long Island hospital training students under this model.

Collins, NYU Winthrop’s President & CEO; Charles M. Strain, Chairman of the Board of Directors at NYU Winthrop; Alan Jacobson, MD, Chief Research Officer; Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, Executive Director of NYU Winthrop’s Diabetes and Obesity Institute; and John F. Aloia, MD, NYU Winthrop’s Chief Academic Officer.

Further underscoring the importance of medical education and research, NYU Winthrop recently broke ground on a new four-floor, 95,000-square-foot Research Institute that will include core laboratories and a Clinical Trial Center for the Hospital’s research team. The Institute will also feature a large lecture hall, a simulation lab and training rooms where students will have the opportunity to learn from NYU Winthrop’s physician-teachers.

“The future of medicine lies in the ability to transform cutting-edge discoveries made in the laboratory into real-life treatments for patients suffering from debilitating illnesses such as diabetes, cardiometabolic disease, Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis,” said John Collins, President & CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital . “The effective transition of new discoveries from the ‘bench to bedside’ is the vision and goal upon which the NYU Winthrop Research Institute is focused.”
