Today, more than ever, the pace of scientific research and innovation is the fastest it has ever been and it requires full commitment, collaborative research, and clinical excellence. New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) is helping to shape the future treatment and diagnosis of complex eye diseases through the work of a growing team of world-renowned researchers and clinicians at downtown and uptown campuses in Manhattan. Our ability to capitalize on the vast clinical resources of the Mount Sinai Heath System, and the research infrastructure of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, allows NYEE specialists greater freedom to purse big ideas, challenge the conventional wisdom, and speed the pace of discovery.
Helping NYEE advance its pioneering work in the fields of cutting-edge ocular imaging, treatment breakthroughs, new surgical devices, and genetics and genomics of eye disease are three programs:
- The Shelley and Steven Einhorn Clinical Research Center of NYEE, a comprehensive venue for major clinical trials and home to a state-of-the-art imaging center.
- Eye and Vision Research Institute at NYEE, an interdisciplinary institute place for faculty, researchers, post-doctoral fellows, and biostatisticians to collaborate, develop and share breakthroughs in basic and translational research.
- Ophthalmic Innovation and Technology Program at NYEE, a center where new technologies and therapies are developed and commercialized in the form of new products and treatments.
Together, these programs allow NYEE to engage in a 360 degree approach to visual science—taking the work from the lab to clinical investigation, and closing the loop with product development to bring cures, novel treatments, and products directly to the patient.
