Cancer Precision Medicine Retreat -- Session 5: Eirini Papapetrou

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Papapetrou during 2022 and/or 2023. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
