The minutes of the December 7, 2011 meeting were approved.
The FY2011 NIH awards to medical schools (excluding contracts) were discussed. Einstein has risen to 23rd, above Harvard. This is a reflection of the quality of our faculty, and the change to larger grants besides R01s has had a significant impact.
The potential for enhancing Einstein’s clinical research component was discussed.
The agenda of the recent board meeting was summarized, with several important gifts being announced and an excellent presentation by Dr. Vern Schramm.
The meeting adjourned at 3:35 p.m.
