Lightbulb Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS), formerly the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM), is an American medical school in the New York City borough of Manhattan in the state of New York. It was chartered by Mount Sinai Hospital in 1963..

Mount Sinai St. Luke's and Mount Sinai Roosevelt, are academic affiliates of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and are a combined 1,028-bed, full-service community and tertiary care hospitals serving New York City’s Midtown West, Upper West Side and parts of Harlem.

Within its Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology, was the first to offer a class allowing medical students to fully sequence their genomes, and was also the first CLIA-certified next-generation sequencing lab in New York City.

Mount Sinai Roosevelt's Emergency Room is notable for being the site of John Lennon's death but was demolished in the early 1980s..

"St. Luke's" is also mentioned in the song "Renee" by the Lost Boyz as the hospital where 'Renee' was taken when she was shot and subsequently died..

Jazz saxopohonist Grover Washington, Jr. was taken to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital after he collapsed following a television appearance on December 17, 1999, and was pronounced dead from a massive heart attack...

Mount Sinai is a 2,285-metre (7,497 ft) moderately high mountain near the city of Saint Catherine in the Sinai region. It is next to Mount Catherine (at 2,629 m or 8,625 ft, the highest peak in Egypt). It is surrounded on all sides by higher peaks of the mountain range.
The human genome is the complete set of genetic information for humans (Homo sapiens). This information is encoded as DNA sequences within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria. .The number of human chromosomes was published in 1923 by Theophilus Painter. By inspection through the microscope he counted 24. Surprisingly, his error was copied by others and it was not until 1956 that the true number, 23, was determined... is my favourite colour, do you know what pink is? Red 27,white 65. 65 plus 27,92. 'pink' has 4 letters, 92 divided by 4, twenty-fooking-three..Of course time is just a counting system... numbers with meanings attached to them..When I circled every 23rd letter of her note... it became clear...
