November 30, 2018—BRONX, NY—Capping off another successful research year,faculty members at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore, received $172 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in federal fiscal year 2018. (Einstein also received an additional $5.4 million from select federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which is administered through the NIH). Investigators will use the funding to pursue a wide range of basic, translational and clinical research and training projects, including projects involving epigenetics, autoimmune disease, and neurosurgery.
Dean Gordon F. Tomaselli, M.D.“As this year’s NIH funding demonstrates, our researchers continue to secure significant grants in a very competitive environment,” said Gordon F. Tomaselli, M.D., the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean at Einstein. “Faculty members—from our most junior to our most established—have successfully leveraged the resources at Montefiore and Einstein to open new areas of investigation and enhance existing areas of strength, propelling discoveries that will improve health. It’s another impressive showing from our remarkably productive research community.”
