Hoshida laboratory

Hoshida lab employs multidisciplinary, translational approaches to chronic liver diseases including liver cirrhosis and cancer, with particular emphasis on genomics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, clinical diagnostics, and chemical biology, and is currently focusing on the following projects with NIH support.

1. Molecular signature for clinical outcome prediction in liver cirrhosis and cancer.
2. Molecular classification of liver cancer to guide personalized treatment.
3. Nanotechnology-based drug delivery for treatment of liver cirrhosis and cancer.

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. Hoshida did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2012 and/or 2013: 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 at Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
