Mount Sinai

CheckPoint Sciences has established a genomics laboratory and bioinformatic services collaboration with one of the world’s leading genetics and genomic labs, the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at Mount Sinai (the “Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai”) (click here). The Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai in New York was founded in 2011 to help advance precision medicine with cutting-edge technologies and world-class computational and analytical resources. The collaboration is led by the CheckPoint Sciences’ Science Advisory Board, which includes several of the foremost cancer immunotherapy experts from The Tisch Cancer Institute and the Icahn Institute.

The collaboration provides our pharmaceutical and biotech clients with a comprehensive suite of capabilities and services necessary for the development, validation and commercialization of immunotherapy response-predictive companion diagnostics:
