The Rockefeller University

At Rockefeller University, bioscience is what we do. It’s all we do. Our exclusive focus is on uncovering the processes that underlie life. How cells work. How genes are controlled. What makes us sick, and what keeps us healthy. The research underway in our labs today is leading to the breakthroughs that will transform medicine tomorrow. A place of both quiet contemplation and intense scientific energy, our unique campus is the backdrop to a culture that values both independence and collaboration. Each of our 82 laboratories is led by a Rockefeller scientist who reports directly to the president. We have 9 broad areas of research, but 0 formal departments and a lean administration with minimal bureaucracy. Our scientists have won a collective 25 Nobel Prizes, and 5 Nobel Prize winners are currently on our faculty. 41 percent of our faculty have been elected to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences. We are a modern, thriving institution: Over the past 10 years we have invested over $2 billion in new facilities, scientific equipment, faculty recruitment, and research support. Our graduate program attracts exceptional Ph.D. students from around the world. They pay $0 in tuition.
