Weill Cornell Medicine understands that a childhood illness can affect the entire family in deep and profound ways. It is why we recognize each person as an individual and put patients and their families at the center of everything we do, especially children. Our physician-scientists are dedicated to understanding the causes of diseases that primarily affect babies, children and adolescents and collaborate with researchers from around the globe to produce the latest breakthroughs.Patient Story WCM helped safely deliver twins during the pandemic.
Making innovative breakthroughs means recruiting new faculty members and nurturing medicine’s future leaders. Together, we’ll discover ways to mitigate pediatric illnesses, we’ll invest in research facilities and initiatives such as biobanking and a virology and vaccine research center that focuses on lifesaving solutions and community education.
To improve the health and quality of life of our youngest patients, we will expand our pediatric research facilities and, along with the Drukier Institute for Children’s Health, seek discoveries specifically for children. We will recruit talented pediatric clinicians and researchers and advance training programs to support and mentor our faculty and staff.
Through investments in research facilities and initiatives such as biobanking and a virology and vaccine research center, we will implement more lifesaving bench-to-bedside solutions.
