The University of Notre Dame and Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have announced a plan to collaborate on biomedical research projects, student training, joint conferences and other forms of academic exchange.
The Feinstein Institute was founded in 1999 to host the research operations for the North Shore-LIJ Health System. As a leading nonprofit research institute with more than 15,000 patients and volunteers participating in studies each year, this partnership will allow both organizations access to data sets, patient trials and groundbreaking innovations. Speaking about the agreement, Robert Bernhard, vice president for research at Notre Dame, said, “Being able to work closely with the world-class clinical researchers in their specialties at the Feinstein Institute will allow our analytical scientists and engineers to continue to be a powerful means for good in the world by solving problems of immediate interest to physicians and hospitals. We are grateful for the opportunity of this partnership and look forward to the fruitful results that this collaboration will bring.”
