Dr. Bodenstein conducts research in the field of computational embryology, which uses computer simulation modeling to understand growth and development of the embryo and fetus (morphogenesis and cell patterning). He is also leading an effort to uncover the genetics behind abnormal growth of the chest wall in children and adolescents.
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.
