HealthITAnalytics | September 24, 2019
Mount Sinai Health System has announced the launch of the Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Institute (BMEII), which will leverage Mount Sinai’s imaging and nanomedicine programs to create medical inventions in the fields of imaging, artificial intelligence, robotics, sensors, and nanomedicine. The center will be the first of its kind in New York City and will establish a broad biomedical engineering research and training program for its graduate and medical students. The BMEII is projected to be fully operational by early 2020 and will recruit at least nine prestigious principal investigators and their teams. These researchers will join existing Mount Sinai teams to develop innovative technologies that will improve the detection, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.
