About Icahn Institute:
At the Icahn Institute,
our vision is to transform biomedical research and healthcare delivery into a
data-driven, evidence-based, patient-tailored discipline. The Icahn Institute
was founded in 2011 to help advance precision medicine with cutting-edge
technologies, novel partnerships between the public and private sectors, and
world class computational and analytical resources. By maximally leveraging
information from patients around the world, we deliver premier precision care
optimized for each patient, while discovering breakthrough, next-generation
treatments through insights derived from cutting-edge analytics applied to
unprecedented amounts of patient-derived data. We promote a core set
of values – designed to promote our future vision of team-oriented, data
driven global biomedical research: 1) Do good for the patient, 2) Simplify, 3)
Share openly, 4) Focus, 5) Synergize, 6) Contributions, not politics, and 7) Deliver.
