Mount Sinai Health System receives $3M to open IBD center

Economist and philanthropist Sanford J. Grossman, PhD, has pledged to give Mount Sinai Health System in New York $3 million for the establishment of an inflammatory bowel disease center.

Dr. Sanford J. Grossman Center for Integrative Studies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will focus on providing personalized treatment for Crohn's disease.

"Mount Sinai has a large and unique data set on patients: clinical symptoms and history, pathology reports on resected gut tissue, genomics and family history and radiology," said Dr. Grossman. "My hope is that the integration and analysis of this data will enable a better understanding of the manifestations and natural histories of Crohn's Disease, and with that knowledge, therapies will be developed to beneficially alter the natural course of the disease."
