As a member of the Department of Pathology, I am currently involved in several basic science and translational research projects. The main aim of the group is to assess the molecular pathogenesis of urological tumors (prostate and bladder cancer), and the genes and pathways involved in the initiation, resistance to therapy and progression of cancer. In addition, we are investigating the molecular markers of early diagnosis and biomarkers of prognosis. These studies will allow us to identify novel targets for the prevention and treatment of cancer patients.

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. Domingo-Domenech 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.
