About Us

About Us

The Englander Institute for Precision Medicine (EIPM) is a translational research hub at Weill Cornell Medicine that is dedicated to using precision medicine to improve patient care. Precision medicine is a personalized approach to healthcare that considers a patient's genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environment to tailor treatments to their specific needs.

From Bench to Bedside  

Founded in 2015, the EIPM advances the delivery of personalized medicine, fosters collaboration across medical and scientific disciplines, and serves as the center of innovative precision medicine care, research, and education at Weill Cornell Medicine. As a prominent research hub, we are committed to translating research findings into clinical practice - Institute members implement applied genomic sequencing, artificial intelligence, informatics, and other cutting-edge technologies to personalize disease research, treatment, and prevention.  Discoveries stemming from these efforts are central to identifying novel biomarkers and developing powerful targeted therapies.     

Our Mission for Today

The mission of the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine is to use precision medicine to improve patient care. We focus on:

  • Technology: Develop novel precision medicine technologies for personalizing care and uncovering the molecular roots of disease
  • Therapy: Create, develop, and deploy novel precision prevention and therapeutic strategies for all patients
  • Training: Train and educate the next generation of physicians and scientists  

Our Vision for the Future 

We envision a future where precision medicine is the standard of care for all patients. We believe that precision medicine has the potential to revolutionize healthcare and improve the lives of millions of people. We are committed to:

  • Identifying individual genetic mutations that drive diseases
  • Developing new treatments and improving existing ones
  • Translating research findings into clinical practice
  • Providing educational programs for healthcare professionals

Our Impact

The EIPM has already significantly impacted the field of precision medicine. The institute has developed new treatments for a variety of diseases, including cancer, rare diseases, and cardiovascular disease. The EIPM has also helped to train the next generation of precision medicine experts.

We are excited to continue our work and make even more progress in the years to come. We believe that precision medicine has the potential to transform healthcare and improve the lives of millions of people.

Our Network

With multiple diagnoses and treatments benefitting from translational research, the Englander Institute partners with a number of groups to explore where precision medicine may be able to play a role in disease treatment and prevention.

Meyer Cancer Center

The Meyer Cancer Center is a collaborative, multidisciplinary research enterprise located at Weill Cornell Medical College, in affiliation with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technologies, nearly 250 basic, translational and clinical researchers from Weill Cornell and Cornell University’s Ithaca campus work together with colleagues at other institutions – including Memorial Sloan Kettering, Columbia University, Rockefeller University and New York Methodist Hospital – to take fundamental discoveries from bench to bedside, and back again. The Center’s mission is to ensure that patients can have immediate access to emerging new therapies in a supportive and caring environment, while training future researchers and recruiting leaders in cancer research and clinical care.  

Clinical & Translational Science Center

Weill Cornell’s CTSC is one of more than 60 federally supported programs nationwide that similarly prioritize collaboration, mentorship and community participation. Since it was founded a decade ago, Weill Cornell Medicine’s CTSC has focused on advancing translational science discoveries across a broad spectrum of clinical disciplines and diseases. The CTSC’s achievements are exemplified in its educational and community-based efforts and has emerged as a premier hub for scientific discovery at Weill Cornell and a full-service home for translational research.

We Are One Cornell

We Are One Cornell 

Cornell University’s depth and breadth of research investigation lends expertise in a variety of scientific fields. Cornell Tech’s dynamic environment encourages innovative thinking, and couples fundamental research with practice. With Cornell’s Academic Integration Initiative, the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine aims to bridge the strengths in Ithaca with the clinical and technological environment in New York City.
