Research Overview

To gain further understanding of the impact of environmental toxins on children's health, the Department has embarked upon a prospective, multiyear study of a multiracial cohort of children born in The Mount Sinai Hospital - The New York Children's Environmental Health Study. This study, a joint venture with the Departments of Pediatrics and Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science, is a pediatric analog of the Framingham Heart Study. It is supported by a grant from The New York Community Trust.
