Venture Sinai for Mount Sinai Hospital’s renowned Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, as like-minded philanthropists join forces to support research and see examples of how investing donor dollars into research will have an impact on the future of patient care.
Every year, members are invited to attend an annual dinner at which three promising scientists from the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum present their research ideas. Members deliberate and select one scientist to receive the coveted title of “Venture Sinai Fellow” for an entire year.
