Research

Dr. Futterweit has a career commitment to the study of polycystic ovary\r\nsyndrome (PCOS). Currently he is studying the natural history of this disease; one\r\nof the the most common endocrine disorders of reproductive aged women. The\r\ncohort size is >800 patients followed for 2-15 years. Important issues that are to be\r\naddressed are the incidence rates of concomitant disease including heart\r\ndisease, diabetes, breast, uterine and pituitary dysfunctions. This is part of a\r\nnational PCOS Multisite Study.

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.Futterweit is not currently required to report Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website at http://icahn.mssm.edu/about-us/services-and-resources/faculty-resources/handbooks-and-policies/faculty-handbook. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
