The Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, located at 1470 Madison Avenue, Hess 1st Floor, New York, NY 10029, will provide administrative support and imaging services for multiple components of this Program Project, more specifically, the Admin Core, Imaging Core, Projects 2 and 3. Drs. Zahi Fayad (Admin Core and Project 3), Willem Mulder (Project 2), and Venkatesh Mani (Imaging Core) have their offices and laboratories in the Hess building and within TMII and have access to all of its resources.
Mount Sinai also has other shared resource facilities that will be utilized for this study such as the Pathology, Flow Cytometry, and Microscopy Cores. All these research facilities are state-of-the-art and are staffed by experts who not only provide research services, but also are sources of instruction and training and, as such, constitute a major educational resource for those wishing to diversify or explore new avenues of research.
MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL (MGH)
MGH will also provide administrative support and imaging services to almost all components of this Program Project, which are the Imaging Core, Projects 1, 2, and 3. One of the main research facilities involved is the MGH Center for Systems Biology (CSB). Its mission is to analyze at a systems level how biological molecules, proteins and cells interact in both healthy and diseased states. Drs. Fil Swirski (Project 1) and Matthias Nahrendorf (Project 2) have their offices and laboratories in the CSB and have access to all of its resources. The other research facility is the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in which the mission is to advance imaging in healthcare through technology development, translational research and education. Drs. Ciprian Catana, David Sosnovick, and Lisa Shin (Project 3) have their offices in the Martinos Center and have access to all of its resources.
NEW YORK UNIVERSITY LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER (NYULMC)
The research conducted at NYULMC is for Project 1. The research facilities specific to this Program Project are the Cardiovascular Research Program, which focuses on basic and translational cardiovascular investigation, and the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine, which is a world-renowned basic research facility at NYU School of Medicine dedicated to advancing the understanding of the molecular functioning of living organisms. Both are located at 560 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10016. Drs. Edward Fisher and Kathryn Moore’s labs are within the Cardiovascular Research Program.
