About Us

The Marc and Jennifer Lipschultz Precision Immunology Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai integrates disease-focused immunological research programs across the Human Immune Monitoring Center and the Microbiome Translational Center. Researchers investigate a range of diseases traditionally understood as immune disorders:

  • Allergy
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Immune deficiencies

The Immunology Institute will also expand its research into new frontiers, including

  • Cancer
  • Neurodegenerative disorders
  • Psychiatric and cardiovascular diseases

Under the leadership of Miriam Merad, MD, PhD, the Institute has made important immunology discoveries that have advanced patient care and improved human health.
