At the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, we are dramatically advancing the art and science of medical care through an atmosphere of intense collaborative learning, social concern, and scholarly inquiry.

We pursue innovative approaches to education, research and patient care, combining the best traditions of medicine with the principles and entrepreneurial thinking of a startup, to uncover novel insights about disease. Building this culture of innovation requires making large investments and taking a transformative approach to discovery, which means taking risks and disrupting the status quo. In this way, we are transforming the practice of medicine and reinventing medical research to produce radically better outcomes for patients.

    The Department of Microbiology of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York has a strong interest in virology and in the immunology of viruses. The department includes more than 20 independent virology and immunology laboratories that support greater than 100 students and postdoctoral fellows. The Department sponsors seminars by guest speakers, and weekly research seminars at which postdoctoral fellows and students report on their research. Many journal clubs and research seminars are available across the institution, through the department, and other scientific institutions within New York City. Students are encouraged to attend local and national scientific meetings and report on their research. The department offers two training programs: the Microbiology Multidisciplinary Training Area and the Training Program in Mechanisms of Virus-Host Interactions.
