- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR Preventive Medicine
Dr. Syam S. Andra leads the organics section of the flagship Senator Frank Lautenberg Environmental Health Sciences Laboratory, NIEHS P30 Core Centre, and NIEHS Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource (National Exposure Assessment Laboratory Network) at Mount Sinai (directed by Dr. Robert Wright). His work is mainly focused on the application of advanced chromatography (liquid and gas) and mass spectrometry (MS/MS and QTOF) workflows in environmental analysis, and human exposure biomarker and biomonitoring studies. He works with Dr. Manish Arora to develop targeted and non-targeted approaches in studying prenatal exposures and childhood exposome by utilizing teeth as a novel bio-matrix and compare with conventional ones (e.g. blood, urine, hair, placenta).
Dr. Andra received his PhD in Environmental Science and Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Before joining Mount Sinai, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in an inter-continental program between the Harvard School of Public Health and Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health (European Union).
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. Andra 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. 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.
