"New Mount Sinai Institute To Study Imaging, Biomechanical Tech" - Fred Bazzoli
The Mount Sinai Health System is creating a Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Institute to establish research and training programs for its graduate and medical students. The new institute is expected to develop medical interventions in the fields of imaging, nanomedicine, artificial intelligence, robotics, sensors, medical devices and computer vision technologies, such as virtual, augmented and extended reality. "Mount Sinai has consistently been at the forefront of advancing health care, and the BMEII will revolutionize how we use technology to treat a wide range of conditions. This is a unique endeavor that will create a hub for world-class researchers and innovators, and position us to find groundbreaking solutions for treating disease," said Dennis Charney, MD, the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and president of academic affairs for the Mount Sinai Health System. “Our imaging and nanomedicine programs are leaders in the development and application of these novel technologies to improve patients’ diagnosis and treatment,” said Zahi Fayad, PhD, professor of medicine, cardiology, and diagnostic, molecular and interventional radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “The creation of Mount Sinai’s Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Institute represents a crucial milestone for our medical center,” said Eric Nestler, MD, PhD, director of the Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
