Mount Sinai’s multidisciplinary Institutes complement its 34 academic departments, and are focal points for collaborative research, clinical activities, and education. Institutes have either a disease-centered focus or a core technology support role, and one, The Institute for Medical Education, is dedicated to supporting and enhancing faculty teaching.  The institutes provide resources and facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas across disciplines; all are dedicated to furthering the School’s mission of translating scientific discoveries into diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic advances for patients. They are closely tied to the multidisciplinary training areas (MTAs) of the Graduate School and bring together faculty, students and trainees from many fields.
