MSIT Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Bob Linhardt, RPI

Dr. Bob Linhardt of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute visited the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to provide scientific and educational sessions, and to meet with potential collaborators on campus as part of our growing collaborative efforts between Mount Sinai and RPI. Dr. Linhardt is an eminent chemist with dozens of patents and a world leading expertise in glycosaminoglycans. Dr. Linhardt’s scientific presentation was entitled ‘Chemoenzymatic synthesis and structural analysis of glycosaminoglycans.’ Dr. Linhardt also hosted an MSIT roundtable to discuss his experiences moving basic science to patented technologies and business development in the creation of bioengineered heparin.
