Director's Message

Welcome to Conduits – the Institutes for Translational Sciences at Icahn School of Medicine.

Conduits was established in 2009 when Mount Sinai received a prestigious Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health. Since that time, we have made tremendous progress toward the central goal of Conduits: transform the research environment at Mount Sinai to rapidly move scientific discoveries from the laboratory to clinical practice and out to the community so that our patients and society as a whole can benefit.

This transformation is ongoing and made possible by the outstanding programs supported by Conduits and the unique collaborations they foster at Mount Sinai. Each program offers a particular expertise and set of services that support excellence in clinical and translational science. I encourage you to explore this website and request a service to see how Conduits can enhance your research endeavors.

Together, we can develop new ways for diagnosing and treating the most complex human diseases and conditions and deliver on the undeniable promise of translational science.
