Dr. Powell completed his medical degree at University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, his residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, and his clinical and research fellowships at Boston University School of Medicine. With clinical and research interests in lung cancer and mesothelioma, Dr. Powell’s investigations center on understanding the genetic and susceptibility factors for these diseases, and the molecular events that are important in the early stages of lung cancer development and progression. His numerous articles and abstracts have been published in journals such as the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, American Journal of Pathology, CHEST, Cancer, and the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology. He is Chair of the Thoracic Oncology Section of the American Thoracic Society, an elected member of the Fleischner Society, and a recipient of the American Cancer Society Research Scholar Award.

Lung adenocarcinoma can progress from an indolent in situ carcinoma to an invasive, aggressive, metastatic tumor. The WHO/IASLC/ATS Lung adenocarcinoma classification emphasizes the distinction of adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and minimally invasive adenocarcinoma from their invasive counterparts. Molecular biomarkers of invasion can distinguish invasive from non-invasive tumors, a distinction that is typically difficult to make in small biopsies and cytology specimens and is becoming increasingly important as the recognition of early stage adenocarcinoma increases with the widespread implementation of lung cancer screening programs in the United States.

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.

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.
