About the Study
The Mount Sinai Million Health Discoveries Program aims to enroll one million Mount Sinai patients to better understand how genes influence our health. By looking at a large and diverse group of patients, we will be able to understand how to treat different diseases in patients of all races, ages, and genders. With your help, we can increase representation in research and potentially improve care for millions of people!
In this real-world study, we will enroll one million Mount Sinai patients over the next 5 years at a scale and speed never before achieved in the world of medicine. Currently, only a small group of patients participate in research and we’re hoping with this study to get a more diverse group of patients involved in research! If a large group of people participate, discoveries from this study will hopefully lead to new medicines to treat, cure, and prevent disease for everyone! This study will be the largest sequencing project of its kind and will make Mount Sinai the most powerful precision medicine institute in the world.
Our mission is to be able to understand how to treat different diseases in patients of all races, ages, and genders.
