- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Environmental Medicine & Public Health
Lauren Petrick, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, and Head of Untargeted Metabolomics at the Senator Frank R. Lautenberg Environmental Health Sciences Laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Petrick is an analytical chemist with advanced training in metabolomics/exposomics and her research interests are in developing exposomics methodologies for environmental health research using high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) and advanced biostatistics/bioinformatics techniques. In addition to performing routine urine, plasma, and serum analysis, her current work focuses on the development of untargeted methods for matrices such as archived neonatal dried blood spots that allow us to “go back in time” to directly measure early life exposures. Working with prospective samples, her work can establish whether metabolomic/ exposomic signatures exist around the time of birth that predict later life disease- including childhood and adult cancers. These assays capture both metabolites and exogenous chemicals that represent the human metabolome and internal exposome, thus allowing for “pre-diagnosis” of disease, targeted prevention measures, targeted health monitoring, and early interventions.

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.Petrick did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2020 and/or 2021: 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.
