The Rockefeller University HospitalOver 100 Years of Bridging Science and Medicine
On October 26, 1910, the new Rockefeller Institute Hospital admitted its first research participant, opening up a new era of biomedical investigation in which physicians were given the resources and encouragement to engage in fundamental studies in the hospital laboratories of the disease problems they dealt with on the hospital wards.
