Ithaca-Weill Connections

Panel Touts Intercampus Collaborations

This past fall, biomedical sciences professor Robin Davisson, PhD—who holds appointments at both Weill Cornell and Ithaca—moderated a panel discussion on the benefits of collaborations between the two campuses. Speakers at the event included two Veterinary College professors—Paula Cohen, PhD, associate professor of biomedical sci- ences and director of Cornell’s intercampus Center for Reproductive Genetics, and molecular microbiologist David Russell, PhD—as well as Weill Cornell’s Anne Moscona, MD, professor of pediatrics and of microbiology and immunology and vice chair for research of pediatrics. The panelists discussed their collaborative efforts, including Moscona’s work with veterinary researchers to study viral infections in dogs and cats—which could shed light on how an animal virus can adapt to infect humans. Efforts to promote cooperation between the two campuses have been stepped up in recent years, with initiatives including startup grant funding for collaborative projects and the establishment of a direct bus service offering work space, wifi, and power for electronic devices.

Promoting Health and Curing Disease

Cornell is on the cusp of making scientific and medical breakthroughs that will advance medical care for all forms of life across the globe. The new technologies, insights, and discoveries that happen in our classrooms, laboratories, and examination rooms will benefit the lives of generations in immeasurable ways. Strengthening connections between our Ithaca campus and the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City will allow us to advance our pioneering work and our leadership in four vital biomedical areas:

  • Biomedical engineering, nanomedicine, and systems biology
  • Global health and infectious diseases
  • Chemical biology and experimental therapeutics
  • Multidisciplinary approaches to cancer biology

Deepening Knowledge, Broadening Synergies

To make critical advancements in these fast-growing and life-shaping areas, we will strategically deepen knowledge within and broaden synergies among the disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics, nanobiotechnology, clinical medicine, applied mathematics, and computer science. We will strive to balance specialization with synthesis and foster a culture of innovation and collaboration.

Our Priorities

Cornell’s strongholds in New York City and Ithaca are only as secure as the resources that support them. As we look to the future, the following forms of support sustain and bolster our leadership in the life sciences and in biomedicine:

Faculty renewal and recruitment: With vital faculty renewal funds, the university aims to attract and secure academic leaders, medical professionals, researchers, and scientists who will make breakthroughs in their fields and contribute to interdisciplinary synergies in biomedical science.

Graduate fellowships: Fellowships allow Cornell’s outstanding graduate students to make important contributions to their focus areas and also explore meaningful intersections with the work of others. Through their intellectual energy and fresh insight, graduate students are the university’s engines of innovative thinking and cutting-edge research. As these individuals transition from being students to becoming professionals and experts in their fields, graduate fellowships are a tremendous investment in Cornell’s future.

Annual funds: As important opportunities emerge, current-use funds to the university and individual colleges and units help provide immediate support for academic, medical, and scientific collaboration between Ithaca and New York City campuses. Annual gifts provide Cornell with maximum flexibility for its different important and urgent needs, and gifts at all levels contribute to immediately deployable resources that are vital to strengthening our numerous Ithaca-Weill partnerships.
