The Rockefeller University Hospital is a key component of the Rockefeller University Center for Clinical and Translational Science, which is devoted to the research of human biology and disease.
The Rockefeller University Hospital has been recognized for excellence in biomedical research since its founding in 1910. Understanding the infectious process, the immune system, basic physiology and cellular biology and molecular biology have been the bedrock of the research performed here. The hospital collaborates with other institutions such as the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the New York Presbyterian Medical Center.
Patients and volunteers who consent to participate in research studies (protocols) are treated without charge. Unlike most hospitals, the Rockefeller University Hospital does not routinely provide standard diagnostic and treatment services. Admission is selective: patients are chosen by Hospital physicians solely because they have an illness or condition being studied, or because they are healthy volunteers and are also needed for study. Thus, all research participants are volunteers, and as such are important partners in the research process. Without volunteers and patients, significant advances in biomedical knowledge could not otherwise be achieved.
There are many different student groups.
At The Rockefeller University, technology transfer involves the movement of research results from the laboratory toward the marketplace. The Technology Transfer Office is a service department of the University that facilitates the protection and further development of technologies developed by personnel of the University. Patentable inventions, tangible materials and copyrighted materials are transferred to the for-profit sector for further development into useful commercial products and services.
Universities engage in technology transfer for five reasons:
