Research

Environmental and occupational airway disease

Both clinical and in vitro studies are under way to investigate the clinical course, epideniology and mechanisms underlying airway diseases (asthma and bronchitis-like syndromes) that are seen in workers in a number of different industries. These industries employ organic compounds such as latex paper, wool, cotton, food products, and industrial wastes.

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. Schachter did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2013 and/or 2014: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
