WHAT is the Translational Research Building?

All these big hospitals around here keep spilling over into new spaces and some of them, I have not a clue as to what they are about..

The health field is still a booming field for some, despite the demise of St. Vincent's and Cabrini... 

I am not sure what follows is a totally adequate answer, but there you have it

Translational Research Building – 227 East 30th Street

This 70,000 square-foot condominium space, comprising three full floors plus ground-floor space, houses the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, as well as a number of dry research programs in population sciences, community health, epidemiology and bioinformatics. The facility will also help accommodate growth in research activity, and addresses the objective of the Medical Center's Campus Transformation of moving non-clinical functions off campus.

Fit-out of the 7th floor was completed in December 2010. Fit-out of the ground floor plus 6 and 8 was completed in late summer 2011.

   Dry research workspaces

   Waiting areas and offices

   Conference room with multimedia capability

Maybe I can find some more...

Translational Research and Novel Technologies

The “Translational Research and Novel Technologies” component of the NYU-HHC CTSI provides a framework for the development of collaborative research aimed at the identification of new therapies and the better understanding of disease mechanisms. It does this in many ways, notably through a Pilot Project program, in addition to support for research programs that utilize key core resources and the creation of collaborative research networks that leverage the transitional potential of basic and clinical research endeavors. We are available to consult with investigators at all stages of their careers who are interested in developing innovative projects that cross traditional lines across the spectrum of biomedical research, from bench to bedside.

Pilot projects: The NYU-HHC CTSI Translational Research Pilot Project Awards support collaborative scientific studies to enable the development of a preliminary data set that will form the foundation for submitting translational research grant applications to the NIH. Letters of intent for support are generally required annually and the awards run through the subsequent calendar year. Additional information about the application process can be found in the Funding Opportunities section. Projects supported in the past can provide a guide to new applicants and can be found on the CTSI Highlights page.

Utilization of new cores: As the institution’s research capabilities grow, new cores are created to support investigators whose goals are to meet translational science challenges. The NYU-HHC CTSI is the entity that coordinates supplemental funding that can enable proper utilization of these cores.
Research Studios: Both clinical investigators and basic science faculty members often need an opportunity to present their ideas for translational projects, their clinical protocols and their manuscripts in development for review and critique prior to submission to funding agencies or to journals. The CTSI provides "Research Studios" to assist these investigators. Additional information can be found in the CTSI Research Studios page.
