NYU Winthrop Celebrates Groundbreaking of New Research Institute
With its deep commitment to medical education and research, NYU Winthrop successfully blends the progressive philosophy, sophistication and advances of a teaching and research institution with a very personal approach to patient care. The Hospital’s longstanding academic mission was strengthened in 2011 when NYU Winthrop became a Clinical Campus of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, educating 80 third- and fourthyear medical students each year, and making NYU Winthrop the only Long Island hospital training students under this model.
Members of NYU Winthrop’s senior administration and Board of Directors recently gathered to mark the groundbreaking of the new Research Institute.

Strain, Chairman of the Board of Directors at NYU Winthrop; Alan Jacobson, MD, Chief Research Officer; Virginia Peragallo-Dittko, RN, Executive Director of NYU Winthrop’s Diabetes and Obesity Institute; and John F. Aloia, MD, NYU Winthrop’s Chief Academic Officer.
Further underscoring the importance of medical education and research, NYU Winthrop recently broke ground on a new four-floor, 95,000-square-foot Research Institute that will include core laboratories and a Clinical Trial Center for the Hospital’s research team. The Institute will also feature a large lecture hall, a simulation lab and training rooms where students will have the opportunity to learn from NYU Winthrop’s physician-teachers.
“The future of medicine lies in the ability to transform cutting-edge discoveries made in the laboratory into real-life treatments for patients suffering from debilitating illnesses such as diabetes, cardiometabolic disease, Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis,” said John Collins, President & CEO of NYU Winthrop Hospital . “The effective transition of new discoveries from the ‘bench to bedside’ is the vision and goal upon which the NYU Winthrop Research Institute is focused.”
