IMPACT

My research interest is in the area of translation of genetic and molecular information in medical practice. I am the Director of the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine at Mount Sinai and the principal architect of the Institute’s BioMe™ Biobank. I have served previously as Vice Chair for Research, Department of Medicine. I am experienced as principal investigator in U01 Collaborative Consortia for 15 years. As a mentor, current and future projects specific and relevant to clinical/translational research are the following: U01 CKD Biomarker Consortium of NIDDK, as well as the U01 eMERGE (electronic medical records and genomics) II Network and U01 IGNITE (Implementing Genomic Medicine in Practice) Network of NHGRI. In addition, I hold NIH-funded research grants in the area of mechanisms of kidney disease and diabetic complications. I am a key function leader for personalized medicine and biorepositories for Mount Sinai’s CTSA and serve on the Centers for Community And Research Partnerships Board.
