Mount Sinai – Personalized Medicine Research Program


The purpose of the Personalized Medicine Research Program is to enable and foster breakthrough research at Mount Sinai that will redefine (on a molecular level) the common disorders so that diagnostics and therapeutics can be targeted, or “personalized,” to specific patient populations, thereby offering the right treatment to the right patient.

The Personalized Medicine Research Program will develop and provide essential core technologies that will enable genome-wide analysis of genetic variation and function in human DNA, and quantitative biology at the single-molecule level for large-scale studies of genetic associations and predictive biomarkers. Access and training in these resources will be critical to overcoming current research infrastructure barriers that limit our disease-oriented research centers in deciphering the genetic underpinnings of, and developing personalized approaches to, complex diseases.
