NYU Langone Medical Center has re-opened the Skirball building located at 530 First Avenue, which houses a variety of physician offices and the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine. This is the first in a series of ongoing phased re-openings on the main campus of NYU Langone after damage sustained during Hurricane Sandy. In addition to the Skirball building, the main lobby at the Medical Center is also open.

“We’re pleased we can bring so many of our researchers, physicians, scientists and other staff back to their original locations,” said Robert Grossman, MD, dean and CEO of NYU Langone Medical Center. “Though there is still much work to be done, the re-opening of Skirball represents a major step toward the full resumption of services on the main campus.”
