Specific Research Interests: Host-Pathogen Interactions, Vaccine Development
My research focuses on host-pathogen interactions involving respiratory viruses. More specifically, I am interested in studying the replication, pathogenesis, and transmission of respiratory viruses. Areas of research include studies on humoral responses to influenza vaccines, development of model systems to study the effectiveness of vaccines against respiratory viruses, studies on virus regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses, and studies examining adaptation of viruses to new hosts.

PhD, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport
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. Albrecht during 2020 and/or 2021. 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.
