Kimihiko Oishi, MD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Pediatrics
Specialties:Pediatrics, Medical Genetics and Genomics
Dr. Kimihiko Oishi is Assistant Professor of Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and Department of Pediatrics. He received his medical degree from Jikei University School of Medicine in Tokyo, Japan, followed by Pediatrics residency at Jikei University Hospital. After his research fellowship in Dr. Gelb’s molecular cardiology laboratory at Mount Sinai, he completed his Pediatrics residency and Medical Genetics fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital. He joined the faculty at Mount Sinai after completing his fellowship in 2014. His current research focuses on inborn errors of metabolism and familial tumor syndromes.
He is a clinical geneticist and serves as an attending physician in Medical Genetics in the Biochemical Genetics Clinic and an attending physician in General Pediatrics for particularly for children from Japanese speaking families at the Mount Sinai Medical Center.
