Date:12/4/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

The leadership of the Mount Sinai Health System joined city officials to announce $5 million in funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) toward the establishment of the Mount Sinai Institute of Technology, or MSIT. The funding will be used to transform existing space on the campus of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai – the academic medical institution of the Mount Sinai Health System – into several facilities for MSIT, with the overarching goal of radically transforming biomedicine through the discovery, design, development and delivery of entrepreneurially-driven, technology-based solutions to critical unmet medical needs, particularly in the current era of healthcare reform. The new facility’s anticipated completion date will be in the latter part of 2014.

New degree offerings related to MSIT commenced during the 2013-14 academic year.
