Unique Academic Affiliation Will Accelerate Innovation and Discovery in Biomedical Sciences

At the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, we have taken a bold new approach to our pursuit of breakthrough discovery and innovation by forming an academic affiliation with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Designed to pool our expertise in biomedical research and patient care and Rensselaer’s in engineering and invention prototyping, this affiliation will accelerate collaborations that support educational programs, research, and the development of diagnostic tools and treatments that promote human health.

With technology playing an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, high competition for research funding, and the pharmaceutical industry investing less in research and development, Mount Sinai and Rensselaer are leveraging complementary strengths to revolutionize biomedical research and accelerate the pace of innovation and entrepreneurship across the health sciences.
