- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences
The focus of my research is prototyping collaborative and participatory models of biomedical research and innovation. I am particularly interested in (a) greatly expanding the rates of participation in organized health research, (b) broadening the types of contributions participants in research are able to make, (c) promoting discovery & innovation through "equal access" and equitable data sharing practices, i.e. those which enable individuals to build highly integrated, longitudinal research profiles with portable, re-usable data and information assets, (d) the creation of well-consented public data resources via the “open consent” framework, (e) building research networks and communities of practice around emerging technologies. Since 2007, I have been working closely with George Church at Harvard to develop the Global Network of Personal Genome Projects (PGP), which includes research studies in 4+ countries that collaborate on the development and evaluation personal genomic technologies and practices at increasing scales. The first site was founded at Harvard Medical School in 2005, followed by sites at Hospital for Sick Kids / University Toronto (2012), University College London (2013), and the Center for Molecular Medicine CeMM in Vienna, Austria (2014). I have co-founded a variety of initiatives, organizations and programs, including: PersonalGenomes.org OpenHumans.org DIYbio.org GETconference.org. I work with the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology.
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.
Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Bobe during 2019 and/or 2020. 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.
