HSS Receives $5.6 Million Grant to Support Genomics Research to Prevent and Repair Tissue Damage

Monday, July 16, 2018

NEW YORK, NY -- Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), known for its leadership in musculoskeletal care, is at the forefront of functional genomics for autoimmune diseases thanks to pioneering research being conducted by investigators in the David Z. Rosensweig Genomics Research Center. The Rosensweig Center was established in 2013 through the visionary partnership of The Tow Foundation. The Tow Foundation has pledged an additional $5.6 million to transform the Center's impact by highlighting translational research and expanding its focus from autoimmune disease to more broadly address the major musculoskeletal conditions which are seen every day at HSS. The goals of this new work are to prevent and repair musculoskeletal tissue damage related to acute or chronic injury, aging, and autoimmunity and inflammation.
