    Dr. Chu is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. He practices emergency medicine as an attending physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospitals. He received his MD degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn. He trained in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital, Stony Brook, and he completed a fellowship in medical toxicology at NYU/Bellevue in New York City.

Research

Biodefense, Cardiovascular

He has multiple original research articles evaluating various treatments for cardiovascular drug toxicity, chemical warfare agents and various recreational drugs. Along with his colleague, Dr Theodore Bania, he was instrumental in developing models for lipid resuscitation therapy that expanded the use of intravenous lipid emulsions for drug toxicity.

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. Chu did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2014 and/or 2015: 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.

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.
