The creation of the Mount Sinai Institute of Technology in partnership with NYCEDC “is an exciting example of a public-private partnership developing critical resources to address major problems,” said Mr. Smith. “MSIT will allow us to address major challenges in the biomedical sciences through the development of novel, cost-effective, technology based solutions while training the next-generation of scientific and clinical leaders to have the technical expertise and practical experience to drive use-inspired basic research from original biologic insight all the way through the technology and product development process.”
“The Mount Sinai Institute of Technology is a robust extension of our partnership with the Icahn School of Medicine,” said Rensselaer President Shirley Ann Jackson. “This research and technology hub will enable innovation and discovery in biomedical technologies, healthcare analytics and education, and drive economic development and improved health care. Rensselaer will work closely with Mount Sinai to foster the growth of the MSIT, while expanding opportunities to build Rensselaer-driven biomedical technologies upstate.”
