The Institute for Exposomic Research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Uncovering How Lifetime Exposures Shape Human Health
The Institute for Exposomic Research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai envisions a world where we prevent disease with environmental origins and improve health outcomes for all, from preconception, pregnancy, and the earliest stages of child development to adulthood and retirement age. Our mission is to understand how environmental exposures affect health, disease, and development and to translate that knowledge into new strategies for prevention and treatment.
Our approach is holistic, encompassing the chemical, nutritional, and social environments and the interrelationships among them. We aim to cultivate the public consciousness necessary to make meaningful changes in policies and practices to protect health and build healthier and more just communities where we live, play, and work. We strive to accomplish this mission while training the next generation of health professionals across multiple disciplines and in collaboration with practitioners from across the Mount Sinai Health System and beyond.
