research

Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) is a hub of biomedical research, with scientists and physicians working together at the nexus of science and clinical research.

Our investigations range from clinical trials, which test the safety and efficacy of new treatments, to translational research, which serves as a bridge between discoveries in the lab and those in the clinic, to mathematical and computational research analyzing biomedical data. Together, we are making a vital contribution to the development of new and better therapies for the treatment of cancer and allied diseases.

Sloan-Kettering Institute Research Laboratories

Research activities at Sloan-Kettering Institute are organized into eight different programs: Cancer Biology and Genetics, Cell Biology, Computational Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Molecular Pharmacology and Chemistry, and Structural Biology. The researchers in these programs explore basic scientific questions relevant to biomedicine. These questions provide opportunities to translate discoveries into clinical applications.

Memorial Hospital Research

Research is an important focus at Memorial Hospital. Our investigations range from clinical trials, which test the safety and efficacy of new treatments, to translational research, which serves as a bridge between discoveries in the lab and those in the clinic, to mathematical and computational research analyzing biomedical data.
