Touro is a community of scholars who are dedicated to research and the ideals of scholarship; and of learners who seek to transform their lives through education. Intrinsic to our mission is the imperative to ask, imagine and become a partner in the learning process. At the heart of Touro’s spirit of intellectual inquiry is finding meaning and value in the questions themselves.
- President Alan Kadish, M.D.
The breadth of Touro’s instructional programs is matched by the research endeavor of its faculty. From NIH-supported research project at NYMC to Fructose Research at TU - California to obesity and mammograms at Touro College New York, Touro’s faculty are seeking answers to fundamental problems. And scholarly ambition isn’t limited to faculty. Touro students have opportunities and resources to conceptualize and pursue their own research projects.
Research is conducted with both institutional support and with external funds. Of course, externally sponsored activities include training, demonstration, public service and fellowship projects, all of which cross-fertilize teaching and research at Touro as part of our institutional mission to develop and transmit new knowledge. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is the research support arm of Touro College, and the Institutional Review Board #1 and Health Sciences Institutional Review Board are duly constituted faculty committees that ultimately report to Dr. Kadish. New York Medical College, Touro University California and Touro University Nevada each have research entities as well.
