Yesterday I had the privilege of visiting the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Just like MHRI, they are the research home for a large healthcare system (the North Shore Long - Island Jewish health care system in the New York area).
It was great to meet with their leadership and compare and contrast. They have many similarities to us. They serve 16 hospitals and over 400 sites. In addition to clinical research, they also have substantial translational research located on the North Shore campus (see picture to the right). Yesterday we had a stimulating conversation about collaborative potentials for research at large healthcare systems that pride themselves on linking academics and real-world healthcare.
