Peter Palese

Horace W. Goldsmith Professor and Chair, Department of Microbiology, Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai Health System

Peter Palese is Horace W. Goldsmith Professor and chair of microbiology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Palese’s research focuses on RNA-containing viruses, especially influenza viruses. He has been a pioneer in the field of reverse genetics for negative-strand RNA viruses, which is crucial for the study of the structure/function relationships of these viruses’ genes, for investigations of viral pathogenicity, and for development and manufacture of novel viral vaccines. In recent years, Palese and his Mount Sinai collaborators have directed their efforts at developing a universal influenza vaccine and a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine for low- and middle-income countries. Palese is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine and a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. (Mount Sinai is a 2022 Festival Underwriter)
