The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will receive $43 million from the National Institutes of Health over the next five years to participate in a national research program studying how environmental factors affect child development. "The findings from this pioneering study will significantly assist our understanding of complex chronic diseases, as it is becoming clearer that the environment we experience as children, even starting before birth, has a major influence on our health as adults," said Dennis S. Charney, MD, dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Mount Sinai's program is led by husband and wife principal investigators Drs. Robert and Rosalind Wright, a pediatrician and an adult pulmonary critical care specialist, respectively.
