Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism

Building on an already strong foundation of diabetic research at Einstein and treatment at Montefiore, campus leaders, scientists, physicians, and staff have come together to create a thoughtful, comprehensive approach to advance patient outcomes. The newly-formed Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism (“The Fleischer Institute”) at Montefiore Einstein bears the name of the late Dr. Norman Fleischer, former chief, Division of Endocrinology and founding director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)- funded Einstein Diabetes Research Center.

With this namesake, the Fleischer Institute will serve as a major hub for discovery and clinical care. Scientists will conduct cutting-edge basic, clinical, and translational research to foster biomedical discovery, alongside clinicians who will provide innovative programs for the care of diabetes and metabolic disorders. The Center’s state-of-the-art clinical facility at 1180 Morris Park Avenue—located on the campus of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine—will provide expert care to patients in the Bronx community, as well as Northern Manhattan, Westchester County, and the Hudson Valley.

The Fleischer Institute programs focus on three core areas: clinical care, research, and education.

Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism will respond quickly to the needs of Montefiore patients through discoveries at Einstein. Its programs focus on three core areas: research, clinical care and education. The following pages invite you to learn about each of the three programs in further detail.
