Alexandria Center for Life Science 450 East 29th Street, 2nd Floor
Cornell won an intense competition to build a new world-class applied sciences campus in New York City by presenting a new vision for graduate tech education. The new Cornell Tech is now taking shape, bringing academia and industry together to turn ideas into products and solve problems directly relevant to New York’s leading industries.
Healthcare features prominently in the school’s curriculum and research agenda. In partnership with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Cornell Tech will be designing the “Healthier Life” hub with an innovative two-year degree, industrial research projects and intense corporate engagement around health. New York is already gaining ground as an important center of health innovation, but Cornell Tech will propel us to new heights.
For the first time, Cornell Tech Dean Dan Huttenlocher and Professor Deborah Estrin – a mobile health pioneer with a joint appointment at Weill Cornell Medical College – will share their vision for how the campus will contribute to the city’s tech, health and life science ecosystem. They will be joined by Dr. Curtis Cole, Chief Information Officer at Weill Cornell, one of the experts and thought leaders that the campus is engaging to navigate the complexity inherent in health and medicine. These three panelists will participate in a roundtable discussion led by Tom Beauregard, Executive Vice President of United Health Group and the Executive Director of the UnitedHealth Center for Health Reform & Modernization.
