While this interdisciplinary approach to medical research was once considered controversial because many senior scientists and physicians believed it would slow down the research process, today it's clear that the NIH's gamble paid off.
"I'm proud that we've been able to bring together these different institutions - each with their own culture and leadership - to work toward the same mission," says Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley the CTSC's founding director and principal investigator, Weill Cornell Medicine's associate dean for translational research and education, and the Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Distinguished Professor of Endocrinology in Medicine. "CTSC-supported research now serves as an example of what successful interdisciplinary collaborations can accomplish."
