Today more than ever, it’s clear that everything depends on our health.
Collaborating across all disciplines, NYU Tandon has been working at the intersection of engineering, healthcare, and life sciences for decades, and our researchers have the expertise to create next-generation solutions at every scale.
Meeting health challenges with innovative solutions
We combine far-reaching research geared towards longstanding clinical problems with Apollo 13 mindsets that enable us to create rapid responses to new medical challenges as they emerge. Being Tandon Made means being ready for the future now, because we don’t believe in waiting until a crisis hits to make good health a priority.
Finding ways to make the world healthier
Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Rumi Chunara develops computational and statistical approaches for acquiring, integrating, and using data to improve population-level public health. She considers health from a comprehensive perspective, employing data from both inside and outside the clinic, and some of her most recent research involves leveraging digital data to protect the most vulnerable in the fight against COVID-19.
Thorsten Kirsch’s research defines novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of osteoarthritis and other joint diseases and injuries. His lab studies cartilage homeostasis, maintenance and pathology, as well as how cells and the joint environment interact. To do so, he brings together the engineering expertise of NYU Tandon with the medical expertise of NYU Langone.
