in preventing the progression of heart disease and improve the safety and efficacy of existing treatments."

In addition to the pioneering research aims of the PEN Center at Mount Sinai, the Center will institute a unique training program focused on developing translational nanomedical tools for diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive treatment of cardiovascular disease. Furthering Mount Sinai's ongoing commitment to translational research, the program will stress the importance of bringing the discoveries made as a result of the contract to the patient care setting.

"We are honored to have been selected as one of the primary investigation sites for the PEN program," said Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. "The goals for this program embody Mount Sinai's unwavering commitment to translational research, and will open doors for our world-renowned physician-scientists to make significant advances in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease."

In addition to Dr. Fayad, the Mount Sinai project leaders are Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director of Mount Sinai Heart, the Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute and the Marie-Josee and Henry R. Kravis Center for Cardiovascular Health; Roger Hajjar, MD, Research Director of the Wiener Family Cardiovascular Research Laboratories and the Arthur & Janet Ross Professor of Cardiology, Medicine, and Gene and Cell Medicine; and Martin Schwartz, PhD, Assistant Professor of Cardiology and Medicine. Other Mount Sinai investigators participating in the program are Willem Mulder, PhD, David Cormode, PhD, Kevin Costa, PhD, and Hina Chaudhry, MD. The other institutions involved in this grant are New York University, Columbia University, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
