A Brief History

When Dr. Robert I. Grossman, former Chairman of the Department of Radiology (current CEO and Dean of NYU Langone Medical Center), came to NYU, he had a vision of creating a research department that brought NYU to the forefront of research technology. With Dr. Daniel Sodickson now at the helm as Vice Chair for Research and a growing staff of dedicated research investigators, clinical investigators and wide support staff, the radiology research department has risen in rank among academic radiology departments nationwide in NIH funding within just a few years. Radiology Research at NYU is among the best equipped in the country due to a partnership with Siemens, a field leader in Medical Imaging technology.
