Our research collaborations also include the departments of Neurology and Neuroscience, Neurological Surgery, Radiology, Medical Oncology and Pulmonary Medicine.
Our department seeks to expand clinical outcome research through the study of quality-of-life issues, functional statuses and other aspects of treatment that are not measured using traditional medical tests, as well as development of new instruments to assess quality-of-life, prospective, cross-sectional and retrospective studies of treatment outcomes, and the assessment of other factors that impact outcome, including comorbidity and disease severity.
We also seek to expand patient-based and basic-scientific research in all areas of our department, developing existing strengths and building new ones, as part of Weill Cornell Medicine's extensive, planned research expansion project that includes new, state-of-the-art research facilities on the Weill Cornell Medical College York Avenue Campus.
