The Charles Powell Thoracic Oncology Lab received a new NIH RO1 Research Project Grant and this project will collaboratively examine early lung cancer genomic signatures to distinguish indolent from aggressive tumors. This grant includes co-investigators from the Genomics Institute, the Departments of Pathology and Health Evidence and Policy and collaborators from Columbia and Vanderbilt universities. The goal of this project is to develop and validate molecular biosignatures of invasive and non-invasive lung cancers. 

At Mount Sinai Beth Israel, research is being conducted to improve the safety and success of emergency airway management in the critically ill. Research introduced support the use of simulation training, use of checklists, and full incorporation of videolaryngoscopy. They performed a prospective, randomized, controlled trial of emergency airway management in a critically ill population—one of only such trial designs on this topic in literature. Mount Sinai Beth Israel’s Deborah Ascheim, MD, has spearheaded a grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) New York City Clinical Data Research Network (NYC-CDRN). The goal is to improve the nation’s capacity to conduct comparative effectiveness research efficiently. The focus of the committee’s work is developing infrastructure with the capacity to support clinical trials and contribute to the cystic fibrosis working group. This work is fostering collaboration across multiple organizations and academic medical centers in New York City to facilitate expansion of data sharing and patient-centered clinical research across the city and nation.
