About the Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research

Almost every disease has an environmental component. The Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research, and its Children's Environmental Health Center, focuses on how the totality of environmental exposures—chemical, nutritional, social, and physical—contribute to disease and how some exposures may actually protect us. Leveraging big data, world renowned scientists, and our state-of-the-art Senator Frank R. Lautenberg Laboratory, our team examines many diseases and conditions including autism, ADHD, ALS, Alzheimer's, asthma, birth defects, cancer, obesity, Parkinson's, schizophrenia, and stress.

Our unique ability to look back in time to reveal exposures as early as the first trimester enables us to identify risk factors for diseases that may be present at birth or take decades to develop. Once identified, we develop interventional strategies to ultimately transform the entire health trajectory for children throughout their lifetime.
