Translational Research Program

Translational research includes basic science investigations with the potential to yield scientific discoveries that ultimately improve patient care. The Translational Research Program (TRP) of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center provides vital support services to the department's investigators, including histology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, image analysis, cytogenetics, and molecular testing. Because these resources are provided to our faculty through the department's core facilities, our faculty investigators are well positioned to submit publications and grant applications. 

Led by Alain Borczuk, MD, the TRP is a critical component and facilitator of the high-quality research performed in the department. TRP staff log projects into a database, track requests, monitor research integrity, and list resulting publications. We work closely with the Clinical Trials Office to process tissue samples for biospecimen studies.

The TRP understands how to catalyze clinical solutions quickly, with the highest quality and the best value. We believe the true application of translational research can be achieved by integrating research strategy, clinical collaboration, training, and education. Through the enthusiasm and efforts of our team and our collaborators, our goal is to improve the care and quality of life of all patients.

For inquiries and questions about the TRP, please contact Bing He, Research Manager, via e-mail or at (212) 746- 6230.

On Tuesday, August 21st, the Weill Cornell Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine will unveil the new Translational Research Program web site accessible on site while connected to the hospital network or remotely via VPN at . The old Translational Research Program site will be shut down and become inaccessible on Monday August 20th, 2018 and its data will be imported into the new site. The new site replaces the previous site and enables:

- Submission of research project requests for approval
- Multi-stage review process with email notifications
- Submission of work requests for approved projects
- Generation and status tracking of invoices

On Tuesday, August 21st, you should be able to access the new project request form by visiting:

and logging in with your CWID.

To see the project requests you have submitted, you will be able to visit:
