November 19, 2012
The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York will be renamed the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to honor Carl Icahn's latest gift, which pushes his lifetime giving to the school past $200 million. Additionally, the school is renaming another one of its departments in honor of Icahn's generous giving and work on the Board of Trustees. The Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology will now be the Icahn Genomics Institute.
"Carl's support enables our scientists and clinicians to continue pursuing groundbreaking discoveries. We are honored to bear the Icahn School of Medicine name as we revolutionize healthcare for Mount Sinai patients and for patients around the world," said Mount Sinai president and CEO Kenneth Davis.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Icahn said his mother would be proud to know this his name is finally tied to the medical school, which she once pressured him to attend. Icahn dropped out after two years because he hated it, he told the Times.
