About The Institute

The Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine opened its doors in October 1993, with its first recruits joining the institute during 1994. The institute, encompassing 60,000 square feet of laboratory space divided over four floors, focuses boldly on basic research but provides both core facilities and interaction between the clinical disciplines and the activities in basic science at the New York University Langone Medical Center. With a strong awareness that most medical breakthroughs originate in basic research, the medical center has allocated considerable resources in developing a state-of-the-art, modern, interdisciplinary research unit right in the center of the medical school environment.
