Featured Programs

For more than a decade, scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have collaborated with clinicians throughout North Shore-LIJ Health System to shed light on basic biological processes underlying disease. This knowledge is used to develop new therapies and diagnostics, and it is through this connection to the health system that we bridge the gap between biomedical research and patient care. The Feinstein Institute has forged important discoveries in many medical fields, including bioelectronic medicinecancer, sepsis, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia.
