The New Center
The Hamilton and Amabel James Center for Artificial Intelligence and Human Health in Manhattan will offer researchers a chance enhance their understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The new facility will include the Center for Genomic Health, which was set up to accelerate the integration of genomics and routine clinical care throughout the Mount Sinai Health System.
Eimear Kenny, PhD, Founding Director of the Center for Genomic Health and Associate Professor of Medicine (General Internal Medicine) and Genetics and Genomic Sciences, reports “Our goal is to use artificial intelligence to translate vast knowledge from deep databases of genomic information to improve the lives of every patient at Mount Sinai.”
The Center for Genomic Health will help researchers and clinicians develop innovative ways to make genetic data a standard of healthcare.
