    I was appointed as Associate Director in Hematology-Oncology at the St. Luke’s Hospital in 1995 after completing fellowship and have been closely involved in the training of all the fellows in the program. I feel I have been a good role model and had an impact in their careers in Hematology-Oncology. Many of the graduating fellows continue to keep in touch with me both within the US and internationally.Teaching has been one of my greatest pleasures in medicine and it is something that comes very naturally to me. I find my interactions with fellows is my escape from the rigors of managing a private practice and I am convinced that I learn as much from them as they do from me.



As a fellow my research project focused on the drug development of the topoisomerase I inhibitor topotecan. Using Western Blot assays I quantified the topoisomerase I copy numbers in a variety of human tumors to identify potential cancers that may be susceptible to this therapy. I was also involved in developing a mouse in vivo system for combination immuno-chemotherapy using xenografts of human mammary tumors in mice.

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. Dar did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: 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.
