Department of Medicine

Task Force on Research


Committee charge
Committee Charge

  • Develop a unifying vision to become leaders in translational research

    • Achieve top 10 status nationally

  • Develop common strategies for success across Divisions

    • Training of future physician-scientists

    • Recruiting and supporting translational scientists

    • Building the infrastructure for the full range of translational research (i.e., T1 - T4)

    • Increasing the number of “large” R, P, U grants (clinical, multi-investigator, etc.)



Strengths
Strengths

  • Regional (and in some cases national) recognition in a broad array of clinical specialties and research areas.

    • Auto-immunity & inflammation; the microbiome, cardiovascular disease, asthma; single-site and growing strength in multi-site clinical trials and trial coordinating.

  • A cadre of successful physician-investigators with robust research programs in the Department of Medicine.

  • Access to unique patient populations (TH, BV, VA) and healthcare systems for clinical and population-based research.

  • Strong philanthropic base


Weaknesses
Weaknesses

  • Lack of integrated Departmental research vision & strategy

  • Lack of alignment of an Institutional research mission with our clinical and educational missions

  • Under-developed Departmental research infrastructure

  • Limited exposure of trainees to successful physician-investigators

  • Poor record of recruiting/retaining our own top trainees

  • Ad hoc nature of recruitment process

    • Identification of candidates, startup packages, benchmarks of success


Threats
Threats

  • Very unfavorable funding environment at NIH and other governmental agencies

  • Changing healthcare systems may impact clinical revenue stream

  • Actual and perceived damage to NYU Langone Medical Center by Hurricane Sandy

  • Competition from other academic medical centers both locally and nationally for top talent

    • New research buildings at Sinai, Cornell, MSK, & Columbia


Opportunities
Opportunities

  • Restructure our training programs to enhance the development of academic physician-investigators.

  • Build translational programs around strategically important patient populations that can enhance our reputation

    • Common diseases (CV, DM, etc.) as well as niche/rare diseases.

  • Align Departmental recruitment with Institutional strategic priority areas

    • Genomics, metabolomics, inflammation, stem cells & regenerative medicine, experimental therapeutics, imaging (potential examples)

  • Restructure our teaching hospitals and our outpatient practice sites

    • Enhance patient-based clinical and translational research.

  • Expand our philanthropic base to offset declines in NIH funding.
