U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked Cleveland Clinic among the best hospitals in the nation. In 2016, Cleveland Clinic was ranked the No. 2 hospital in the United States and No. 1 in Ohio.
The Lerner Research Institute is home to Cleveland Clinic's laboratory-based, translational and clinical research. Nearly 2,000 scientists and support personnel pursue a wide range of biomedical questions with the common goal of improving human health.
Some important points:
In addition to the abundance of basic research occurring in the Lerner Research Institute, many physicians throughout Cleveland Clinic conduct translational and clinical research here and hold joint appointments in our departments. The high level of enthusiasm for applying the latest basic scientific knowledge to ongoing clinical questions leads to many fruitful collaborations and a rapid transition from benchtop to bedside.
