Connecting with Cornell volume 15, issue 2 (Fall 2001): Medical Research is Fused with Technology and the Basic Sciences on Cornell's Upstate New York Campuses
MetadataShow full item record
Medical research at Cornell is not confined to the medical campus in New York City or to the field we call human medicine. It represents a much broader range of studies. The link between basic research in chemistry, physics, and biology and research in medicine is more direct than ever. With the sequencing of the human genome and the realization that we share a large fraction of genes with other mammals and organisms, these links will inevitable become even tighter. Also, research aimed at animal health can often lead to cures for similar human diseases. From the College of Engineering to the College of Veterinary Medicine, from the CHESS to the Cornell Theory Center, the existence on one campus of such a broad range of expertise and research facilities makes medical research more feasible and the results more rapid.
