Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Announce Academic Collaboration
Date:5/22/2013

ed, “Combining Mount Sinai’s leadership in biomedical research and patient care—with Rensselaer’s breakthrough research in biotechnology and interdisciplinary studies, rooted in our leadership in science, engineering, and technological entrepreneurship—we expect this agreement to result in radical innovations in health care. At Rensselaer, we have a very simple motto that is nonetheless breathtaking in its audacity: ‘Why not change the world?’ Mount Sinai and Rensselaer are now taking a significant step toward revolutionizing education, research, and practice in the field of medicine—and ultimately, improving human health around the globe.”

“Mount Sinai and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are each institutions already on the cutting edge of research and development, but together will change the tools and treatments used to improve our health across the country,” said U.S. Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand (D-NY). “I am confident that their work together will enable new discoveries in biomedical sciences. This partnership will create countless opportunities for the next generation of leaders in biomedicine.”

Initially, key areas of focus will be genomics, imaging, tissue engineering, and neuroscience. With Mount Sinai’s $3 million investment to build the and the Rensselaer high-performance computing center at the Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations – featuring a new IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputing system – the two institutions will implement some of the most advanced high-performance supercomputing in the world. This will enable them to quickly and efficiently produce sophisticated computer algorithms that analyze genomic data and develop predictive models of disease, which can better help diagnose and treat patients. Mount Sinai’s newly opened Hess Center for Science and Medicine and the Rensselaer Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) will serve as hubs for research and development.
