Mount Sinai Health System Presents: The Quest for Breakthrough Therapies
New insights into human biology and the ability to manipulate molecules both large and small are rapidly accelerating medical innovations. By employing genetic engineering to empower immune cells, scientist-physicians are bringing new treatment options to people with cancer. Mapping the neural circuitry involved in mood disorders points the way towards deep brain stimulation as a successful therapy for treatment-resistant depression. Development of a universal influenza vaccine and broad-spectrum antiviral medicines foreshadow major successes against infectious diseases. At the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, pioneers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai see around corners and imagine the unimaginable as they take on challenges with extraordinary clinical potential.
