Mount Sinai

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2016Mount Sinai Health System is well known as one of the country's most innovative medical institutions, thanks to its focus on using data science to tackle disease. But a recent project, ImmuNet, brings Mount Sinai's work to the public sphere, allowing researchers with limited computational knowledge to explore data and discover disease patterns. Created in partnership with Princeton University, ImmuNet anticipates the role of important proteins and genes in diseases of the immune system, relying on information from more than 38,000 public experiments. The initiative may help the medical community bolster its understanding of the immune system, and could further Mount Sinai's reputation as a leader in the field. The institution also received a $5 million gift in 2015 to create a new center dedicated to "precision wellness," where it will focus on digital health, molecular profiling, and data science. The new center will also research wearable devices and their potential use in health care for monitoring everything from activity and sleep to mood and cognitive functioning.
