The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is a private, non-profit institution.[1] It runs research programs[2] focusing on immunology,[1] inflammation,[3] neuroscience,[4][1] and behavioral medicine.[1] It is also home to the Litwin-Zucker Center for research on Alzheimer's disease.[5] The Institute ranks among the top 10% of grant receiving research centers in the United States from the National Institutes of Health.[6]


The institute was founded in 1995 to house the research operations of Northwell Health (formerly North Shore-LIJ Health System). North Shore University Hospital originally constructed a small research building in 1985 to foster clinical and translational science.[7]


The institute is the laboratory and faculty home of the Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine, an independent, degree-granting institution, chartered by the State University of New York. It confers a PhD degree in Molecular Medicine to students who have previously completed medical school and then matriculate in a mentored research training program in the Feinstein laboratories.


The institute publishes Molecular Medicine and Bioelectronic Medicine, both peer-reviewed medical journals.
