Sinai BioDesign

We are an innovation and fabrication hub within the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai whose mission is to catalyze technological innovation within Mount Sinai and positively transform clinical and research activities in biomedicine. As a new center within the Department of Neurosurgery, Sinai BioDesign operates as an engineering and project management platform to enable and empower Mount Sinai physicians and researchers to translate their ideas into viable products. Employing the biodesign methodology, we work with clinicians and researchers in their environments to identify problems, pain points, and inefficiencies and help guide the development of practical, effective solutions. Sinai BioDesign is currently working in several exciting areas of medicine and technology including: AI platforms for personalized healthcare, surgical devices for improved patient safety and efficacy, wearable devices to monitor brain health, and medical imaging and 3D printing for surgical planning.
