Willem J Mulder, PhD Email Willem Mulder
- PROFESSOR | Diagnostic, Molecular and Interventional Radiology
Willem Mulder, Ph.D., a biomedical engineer with a background in nanochemistry, is Professor of Radiology and Professor of Oncological Sciences at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) in New York, as well as Professor of Precision Medicine at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands. Mulder obtained an M.Sc. in Chemistry from the Utrecht University (2001) and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (2006).
Mulder pioneered the exploitation of nanomaterials as highly tunable immunotherapeutics and molecular imaging agents. His research focuses on (nano-)immunotherapy and precision imaging in cardiovascular diseases, cancer and transplantation. Mulder established library technology, encompassing nanomaterials derived from natural lipoproteins (nanobiologics), that allows meticulously designing targeted immunotherapies. When appropriately designed, such nanobiologics can be applied to empower the immune system’s ability to fight disease, by promoting or inhibiting an immune response, by polarizing macrophage function, or by targeting myeloid cell dynamics.
Mulder has published more than 150 scientific publications in top scientific journals, including Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Reviews Drug Discovery, Nature Communications, Science Translational Medicine, Immunity, etc. His H-index is 62 and his work has been cited more than 11.000 times. Mulder is the principal investigator of multiple National Institutes of Health grants. In 2013, he received the Vidi grant, while in 2018 and the Vici grant from the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO).

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. Mulder during 2018 and/or 2019. 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.
