8. Rockefeller University The Rockefeller University is a world-renowned center for research and graduate education in the biomedical sciences, chemistry, bioinformatics and physics. The university's 73 laboratories conduct both clinical and basic research and study a diverse range of biological and biomedical problems with the mission of improving the understanding of life for the benefit of humanity.
Founded in 1901 by John D. Rockefeller, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research was the country's first institution devoted exclusively to biomedical research. The Rockefeller University Hospital was founded in 1910 as the first hospital devoted exclusively to clinical research. In the 1950s, the institute expanded its mission to include graduate education and began training new generations of scientists to become research leaders around the world. In 1965, it was renamed The Rockefeller University.
The university is supported by a combination of government and private grants and contracts, private philanthropy and income from the endowment.
Since its founding, The Rockefeller University has embraced an open structure to encourage collaboration between disciplines and empower faculty members to take on high-risk, high-reward projects. No formal departments exist, bureaucracy is kept to a minimum and scientists are given resources, support and unparalleled freedom to follow the science wherever it leads.
This unique approach to science has led to some of the world's most revolutionary contributions to biology and medicine.
Throughout Rockefeller's history, 24 of its scientists have won Nobel Prizes, 21 have won Lasker Awards and 14 have garnered the National Medal of Science, the highest science award given by the United States.
For more than 100 years, The Rockefeller Hospital has served as an essential link between laboratory investigation and bedside observation, as patients are participants in clinical studies building on basic research findings from Rockefeller laboratories. This continuous spectrum of research allows for in-depth study of the basis of disease detection, prevention and observation.
The David Rockefeller Graduate Program is based on the concept of learning science by doing science, and is custom tailored to its individual students and attracts a diverse group of exceptional scientists from around the world. The university also offers one of the nation's top M.D.-Ph.D. programs with neighboring Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College.
In addition to the graduate program, there are other learning/training opportunities available, including postdoctoral research, fellowships for the Center for Studies in Physics and Biology and the Clinical Scholars Program, a master's degree for recent M.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. recipients to begin careers in patient-oriented research.

10. The University of York - Department of Sociology The Department of Sociology was one of the first departments to be established in the University and has since become one of the premier centres in the UK for research and teaching in the subject. Our work in areas as diverse as science and technology, language and interaction, and culture and new media, has for many years been recognised as being among the most innovative and influential in the world.
We offer first-rate undergraduate degrees plus postgraduate training both in research and in our taught Masters programmes. Dedicated to providing the very best experience and opportuntites for study, our aims and objectives are:
Aims and objectives
To produce graduates of a high academic quality
To incorporate the latest research and scholarship into our courses
To equip students for the world of work
To enable students to appreciate the value of sociological inquiry and to enjoy studying the discipline
To empower students by increasing their degree of control over course selection and topics of study
To provide students with an understanding of the nature, content and scope of the discipline of sociology
