Einstein receives more than $212 million annually in grants and contracts of which over $150 million comes from National Institutes of Health (NIH). This funds major research centers at Einstein in cancer, diabetes, clinical and translational sciences, liver diseases, aging, developmental disorders, HIV/AIDS and the brain. These centers reflect the innovative, multidisciplinary research that has always been a hallmark of the College of Medicine’s collaborative approach to biomedical science developments and disorders. In addition, Einstein offers robust research and clinical training programs for its students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members supported by numerous NIH-supported projects in a diverse area of cutting-edge research in biomedical sciences and healthcare delivery (as of August 2016).
