Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences
We are shaping the future of genomic research, medicine, and education in the largest, most diverse healthcare system in New York City.
By leveraging a legacy of excellence, a team of world-class geneticists and researchers, and access to one-of-a-kind resources and collaborations, we bring pioneering ideas to life. Fueled by Mount Sinai’s Precision Medicine Initiative, our Department’s innovative, interdisciplinary approach sets it apart from any other genetics and genomics program in the world.
The mission of our Division of Medical Genetics and Genomics is to apply our expertise in understanding human genetic variation as it relates to health and disease across the lifespan. Our goals are to bring the highest quality of care possible to patients with genetic and genomic disorders and to individuals and families at risk for such disorders, from precise diagnostics to state of the art therapeutics. We strive to accomplish this mission while training the next generation of genetics and genomics professionals across multiple disciplines and in collaboration with practitioners from across the Mount Sinai Health System and beyond. We further commit to providing our patients access to cutting-edge research that will shed light on how genetic and genomic variation contributes to human disease and that will bring hope for new treatment options to our patients.
