Our group's major interests were in the field of Inborn Errors of Metabolism mainly involving but not restricted to the following conditions: PKU and Maternal PKU, Tetrahydrobiopterin deficiency, MSUD,  Homocystinemia, Tyrosinemia, The Urea Cycle Enzymes deficiencies, The Organic acidemias as MMA, PA, Isovaleric acidemia, Glutaric acidemia type I and II and including primary Lactic acidosis, Primary Hypoglycemia, Galactosemia, HFI, GSD; Carnitine deficiency, The Fatty acid Oxidation defects, The Mitochondrial disorders, The Lysosomal disorders and others.  The research impetus was on the evaluation and development of new diagnosis approaches and novel therapies for these conditions. Some representative themes can be found in the following articles. Emphasis was also placed on teaching.

Industry Relationships

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.

Dr.Sansaricq is not currently required to report Industry relationships.

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.
