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. Our Department’s innovative, interdisciplinary approach sets it apart from any other genetics and genomics program in the world.
The mission of the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences is to apply our expertise in understanding human genetic variation as it relates to health and disease across the lifespan. Our goal is to conduct inclusive and impactful research and translate this to patient care and solutions to benefit all people. To achieve this goal, we strive to create a diverse anti-racist environment of equity and inclusion, 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 in diverse populations contributes to human disease and that will bring hope for new treatment options to our patients.
