Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Honors Innovators in Scientific Research and Health Care Philanthropy at 2013 Commencement Ceremony
Date:5/10/2013

e Mount Sinai Boards of Trustees, discussed Mount Sinai’s culture of innovation and collaboration, as demonstrated by the opening of the Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine during the 2012-2013 academic year. The Hess Center was designed to foster multidisciplinary teamwork among clinicians and scientists in a state-of-the-art facility featuring one of the largest supercomputers in the United States, which exponentially increases the speed and capacity at which scientists conduct medical research at Mount Sinai. Mr. May emphasized that Mount Sinai students embody that spirit of innovation and collaboration.
