Dr. Liu investigates the distribution and determinants of health outcomes in human populations, with specific focuses on: 1) studying epidemiological patterns, such as geospatial and disparity patterns of health outcomes, using large-scale population-based databases; and 2) studying the health effects of environmental and occupational exposure to pollutants under normal conditions, as well as in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters. Examples of the databases Dr. Liu uses are (a) health and health behavior population-based survey data from federal and local government agencies (e.g. the National Health and Nutrition Examination (NHANES), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), the 500 Cities Projects, the New York City HANES); (b) healthcare databases, such as the hospital discharge data from the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS); (c) cancer registry data with and without linkage to administrative billing data, such as the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program data, and SEER-Medicare; (d) sociodemographic data from the US Census; and (e) environmental pollution data from the US EPA.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Liu did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2017 and/or 2018: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
