Mount Sinai’s Arnhold Institute for Global He – EurekAlert

The Mount Sinai Hospital / Mount Sinai School of Medicine
The Arnhold Institute for Global Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and NYC Health + Hospitals have announced the 2022 awardees of the CURE-19 Research Pilot Grants, an initiative to support collaborative, interdisciplinary COVID-19 research that will address both the pandemic and root causes of health disparities in New York City. Each winner will receive up to $25,000 to support their research project funded by Icahn Mount Sinai.
The CURE-19 Research Pilot Grants, which were launched last year, will support new COVID-19 research, with an emphasis on projects related to disease control for large communities, informatics and decision support systems, addressing structural racism and social determinants of health, translational science research, and evidence-based interventions and policies. The projects will also address the long-term effects of COVID-19, social and environmental determinants of COVID-19, and maternal and child health related to COVID-19.
“We are delighted to support the second cohort of research studies under the CURE-19 collaboration with NYC Health + Hospitals to continue groundbreaking research addressing the impact of COVID-19,” said CURE-19 Co-Director Rachel C. Vreeman, MD, MS, Chair of the Department of Global Health and Health System Design and Director of the Arnhold Institute for Global Health. “The pandemic continues to exacerbate longstanding social, economic, and health inequities for vulnerable communities in New York City and around the world. The CURE-19 Research Pilot Grants help us develop and expand innovations that address these challenges. Ultimately, they will enhance equitable care and strengthen our pandemic response for the most vulnerable.”
“CURE-19 holds great promise for solving several puzzles brought on by the pandemic, especially those affecting vulnerable people, including children and the underrepresented,” said CURE-19 Co-Director Joseph Masci, MD, Chair of Global Health at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst and Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at Icahn Mount Sinai. “It is a welcome addition to the resources already dedicated to these issues. The wide-ranging scope of the four research projects we are funding this year reflects both the breadth of the pandemic’s impact and the diverse ways we are working to meet the needs of our community.”
The 2022 research grant winners and their projects include:
The research pilot projects are part of a larger partnership known as the COVID-19 Unit for Research at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst and NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens (CURE-19), a collaboration between Mount Sinai’s Arnhold Institute for Global Health and NYC Health + Hospitals’ Global Health Institute that was formed during the initial peak of the pandemic in 2020. CURE-19 translates data, experiences, and lessons from clinicians at the Mount Sinai Health System, Elmhurst hospital, and Queens hospital into research to both learn and respond to the global pandemic. The Mount Sinai, Elmhurst, and Queens hospitals also have a longstanding academic affiliation agreement and joint residency programs, and have previously collaborated on training, patient care, and research. The Arnhold Institute for Global Health at Mount Sinai, which specializes in global health systems and implementation research, supports four strategic global partnerships that build more resilient health systems by leveraging academic and health system partners to meet the needs of vulnerable populations.
