Dr. Fayad serves as professor of Radiology and Medicine (Cardiology) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and holds the Lucy G. Moses Professorship in Medical Imaging and Bioengineering. He is the founding Director of the Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Institute; Vice chair for Research, Department of Radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Fayad’s interdisciplinary and discipline bridging research – from engineering to biology and from pre-clinical to clinical investigations – has been dedicated to the detection and prevention of cardiovascular disease with many seminal contributions in the field of multimodality biomedical imaging (MR, CT, PET and PET/MR) and nanomedicine. His work has recently expanded in understanding the effect of stress on the immune system and cardiovascular disease.
