What We Do
The Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Icahn School of Medicine (MSSM) is working to enable translational systems biology. The Institute faculties are experts in a wide range of areas such as machine learning, biostatistics, genetics, genomics, sequencing technology, data science, and high-performance computing (HPC). They work in collaboration with MSSM’s researchers, clinicians, and institutes on fundamental and applied projects in biology, computation, and medicine.
These projects include generating diverse biological data, integrating these data to uncover mechanisms underlying complex human conditions, and the design and implementation of HPC systems to enable the creation, testing and iterative refinement of disease models. At every step, we focus on the ultimate goal of developing novel diagnostics and therapeutics for human disease in collaboration with the medical and research community at Mount Sinai and beyond.
