Minerva enables researchers to pioneer breakthrough discoveries.
Acknowledge Mount Sinai in Your Work
Utilizing S10 BODE and CATS partitions requires acknowledgements of support by NIH in your publications. To assist, we have provided exact wording of acknowledgements required by NIH for your use.
Utilize existing data, or supplement your research with additional data from the Mount Sinai Health System.
Mount Sinai Data Warehouse
The Mount Sinai Data Warehouse (MSDW) collects clinical and operational data for use in clinical and translational research, as well as quality and improvement initiatives. MSDW provides researchers access to data on patients in the Mount Sinai Health System, drawing from over 11 million patients with an encounter in Epic EHR.
Data Ark: Data Commons
The Data Ark: Mount Sinai Data Commons is located on Minerva. The number, type, and diversity of restricted and unrestricted data sets on the Data Ark are increasing on an ongoing basis. Rapidly access high-quality data to increase your sample size; our diverse patient population is ideal for testing the generalizability of your results.
The Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource (HHEAR) Data Center was established as a continuation of the CHEAR Data Center, expanding to include health outcomes at all ages. The goal is to provide approved HHEAR investigators their laboratory analysis results and incorporate them in statistical analyses of their study data.
