Good Scientists Make Good Neighbors: NYSCF Hosts Symposium with Mount Sinai As They Launch a Facility Next DoorNews
Science works best when it is collaborative, and NYSCF is happy to welcome a branch of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to the West side of Manhattan, where NYSCF has its headquarters.
As a sort of scientific housewarming, we were delighted to host a symposium with our researchers and those from Mount Sinai to share their latest work and identify opportunities to deepen the collaborative relationship between our institutes.
NYSCF researchers shared updates on their work to automate stem cell research with our robotic platform – The NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array® – and integrate gene editing into its capabilities, as well as progress in understanding neurodegenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s by studying all cell types of the brain.
Mount Sinai scientists outlined their work to create brain organoids – 3D clusters of brain tissue made from stem cells – to study disease, as well as their advances in flow cytometry and genomics.
We look forward to working alongside these talented scientists to accelerate disease research!
