Mount Sinai School of Medicine has made a name for itself in a significant number of life science research fields. Some of the departments at Mount Sinai conducting research and clinical trials include the Alcoholic Liver Diseases Research Center, the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, the Cardiovascular Research Center, the Center for Multiple Sclerosis, the Center for Research on Influenza Pathogenesis, the Center for Therapeutic Antibody Development and the Seaver Autism Center for Research and Treatment.

A staggering number of clinical trials are currently ongoing at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, including 128 clinical trials in cancer treatment. Researchers are conducting five clinical trials concerned with breast cancer, one of which is led by Paul Hank Schmidt, MD. Dr. Schmidt’s investigation aims to compare the good and bad effects of a new breast cancer treatment approach for patients with metastatic breast cancer that includes surgery and radiation for tumors in the breast to current approaches of using medication to control the tumor.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai recently joined 25 regional stroke centers named a part of the NIH Stroke Trials Network (NIHStrokeNet) by the National Institutes of Health. As a part of the network, Mount Sinai will receive a five-year, $1.3 million grant to build a collaborative research infrastructure for a regional stroke center.
