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 cancer, sepsis, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia.
Our scientists are extensively researching risk genes for conditions including autoimmune and musculoskeletal disorders.
Feinstein scientists conduct groundbreaking research on diseases of the nervous system for new discoveries and therapies.
Our heart and lung division is dedicated to the study and research of the cardiopulmonary system.
Our findings in genetics and genomics are leading to new understandings of myriad diseases and human states.
Our investigators research the immune and inflammatory systems that protect us against infections and environmental hazards.
Our scientists extensively research tumors, cancers, blood-forming organs and blood diseases.
