As an MD/PhD student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMSS), you will have many opportunities to be a part of the cutting-edge research taking place in some of our nation’s best laboratories.

We are committed to training strong researchers. Our Hess Center for Science and Medicine recently added 550,000 square feet of laboratory and clinical space for further collaborations among our extensive research and physician community. Our students have been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Molecular Cell, Nature, and more.

Below are some of our standout recent student publications:
