The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is hosting its second annual SINAInnovations event, and bringing together leaders from medicine, engineering, professional baseball, the performing arts, and the military to discuss the power of teamwork.

“SINAInnovations: Leading a New Era of Discovery,” will highlight the spirit of collaboration and explore how “team science” is leading to innovation and breakthroughs in biomedicine.

The conference will take place at Icahn School of Medicine’s Stern Auditorium at 1468 Madison Ave, on Monday, November 18 and Tuesday, November 19, 2013.

SINAInnovations is one of many ways in which Icahn School of Medicine is transforming academia and the fields of medical research, pharmacology, and technology. Mount Sinai has embarked upon an ambitious and unprecedented effort to redefine how collaborative innovation is taught, fostered, and facilitated within an academic institution. This year’s speakers cover a vast range of team-related topics and share strategies they have developed as leaders in areas such as academia, global media, and finance.

Keynote speakers include Nirav R. Shah, MD, Commissioner of Health, New York State, Joe Torre, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operation at Major League Baseball, Michael C. Crow, President of Arizona State University, Rear Admiral Scott P. Moore, Deputy Commander, Naval Special Warfare Command of the United States Navy, Gary S. May, Dean of the College of Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, and Sara Diamond, President of Ontario College of Art and Design.

Alice Park, Staff Writer at Time Magazine, Stephen H. Friend, President of Sage Bionetworks; Matthew VanBiesen, Executive Director of the New York Philharmonic; and Bhaven N. Sampat, Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University are among the prominent experts who will be featured during panel discussions and breakout sessions.

Distinguished Mount Sinai faculty members Dennis S. Charney, MD, Dean of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Kenneth L. Davis, MD, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Mount Sinai Health System, will make presentations, along with leaders and researchers from Duke University Medical Center, Rensselear Polytechnic Institute, Northwestern University, University of Washington, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis Venture Funds and Cook Ross, Inc.

“As an institution that places an emphasis on advancing research and best practices simultaneously, we consider Mount Sinai the ideal environment for the leaders of scientific progress to meet, collaborate, and ultimately determine the direction of biomedical and technological advancement. This year’s goal is to emphasize the creative and innovative advantages of team-centric culture,” said Dr. Charney, who is also President for Academic Affairs at the Mount Sinai Health System. “We are proud to continue the institution’s longstanding commitment to maximizing the very best of technology and innovation. Bringing renowned experts from academia, industry, venture capital, journalism and consultancy under one roof is our way of enabling further discoveries that will improve treatments for all patients.”

Scott L. Friedman, MD, Dean for Therapeutic Discovery at the Mount Sinai Health System added, “The rapid pace of discovery in biomedical science necessitates teamwork to achieve success. This year’s SINAInnovations conference will provide a playbook on team science, generating enthusiasm among attendees about implementing team science and creating the synergies that accelerate innovation.”
