The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Center for Medical Countermeasures against
Radiation (CMCR) is a multidisciplinary team consisting of two programs and
five cores. Established with the mission of treating acute and chronic injuries
resulting from radiation exposure primarily due to nuclear or terrorist
attacks, the CMCR will facilitate basic, clinical and translation
Furthermore, the center will evaluate mechanisms of repair and evaluate potential therapies to treat
these injuries, for instance in the intestine, bone marrow, as well
as other organs.
To support the CMCR’s mission, our collaborators will include
Oregon Health and Sciences University, SUNY Stony Brook and other academic institutions.
The CMCR is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Health.
