The Mindich Child Health and Development Institute

The Mindich Child Health and Development Institute is a translational research enterprise with the mission of advancing knowledge and therapies for diseases affecting infants, children, and adolescents. Led by Bruce D. Gelb, MD, the MCHDI provides an intellectually rich and supportive environment for fostering collaborative scientific investigation and Mount Sinai’s “bench to bedside” philosophy, as well as training the next generation of scientific leaders in pediatric medicine.

Physician-scientists and scientists at the MCHDI work in a multidisciplinary manner with researchers and physicians in various departments and institutes at Mount Sinai. Together, we strive toward the objectives of developing robust paradigms for understanding the effects of genetics and environment on the health of infants, children and adolescents, and personalizing pediatric medicine through genetics and genomics.
