The future of Medicine will be shaped by the emergence of the next generation of biomedical engineering disciplines that leverage the exponential increase in data and combine it with the computational power to interrogate it, model it, visualize it, built it into machines, and to commercialize it for deployment.
Throughout Mount Sinai, there exist the seeds of a robust biomedical engineering research, design, translation, and entrepreneurship community. To these ends, the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) will be expanded and rebranded into a new BioMedical Engineering and Imaging Institute (BMEII)
BMEII will attracts field-leading faculty, develops unique research and training programs attracting the best medical and graduate students and young innovators, and generate new grants, intellectual property and novel opportunities in entrepreneurship for the Mount Sinai Health System. The BMEII at Mount Sinai is a center of excellence in innovation, training and entrepreneurship in the new fields critical to this transformation of Medicine in addition to the already existing strong imaging and nanomedicine programs within TMII. These new programs will be in: 1) Artificial Intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML); 2) Next generation medical technologies (devices, sensors, and robotics); and 3) Computer vision, virtual and augmented reality.
