Institute for Translational Epidemiology

The Institute for Translational Epidemiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai aims to establish a strong program in epidemiologic research that connects to clinical, basic, and applied research programs within the Mount Sinai Health System. Our vision is to advance interdisciplinary and patient-oriented research and to contribute to translational and integrative research at the School of Medicine.

We are committed to expanding the role of epidemiology in clinical research, and the presence of several world-class clinical and research programs makes ISMMS an ideal setting to establish a strong epidemiology research program to complement existing clinical and preventive activities. Our new concentration areas will build on existing clinical and research strengths in Chronic Disease Epidemiology, Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Mental Health, Occupational Epidemiology, Epidemiologic Methods, Life Course Epidemiology, and Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology. Training, education, and health inequalities will be part of the research portfolio. Read more
