Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell

Department of Molecular Medicine

The mission of the Department of Molecular Medicine is to discover and understand the causes of human diseases and rapidly and effectively translate this information into diagnostic and therapeutic solutions, to train medical students and graduate students in cutting-edge research, and to be a national leader in translational and clinical research. There is a major concern about the disappearance of physician-scientists at a time in history when they are needed most, as the potential for application of research findings to clinical problems is enormous. One of the major goals of the department is to address this need through our training of medical students and young physicians. Toward that end, we also provide all faculty and research facilities for the Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine, a PhD-granting program of Northwell Health for recent medical school graduates.


The department is composed of a team of more than 65 scientists and physicians, plus postdoctoral fellows, medical students, MD/PhD students and PhD students from the Zucker School of Medicine, technicians, and support staff. 


Research interests of the faculty include: autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases, bioelectronic medicine, genetics of human disorders, immunology and inflammation, neuroscience, neurodegenerative diseases, tumor genetics, tumor biology and metastasis, and neuropsychiatric disorders and psychopharmacology.
