The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York and the Chiba Institute of Technology (CIT) in Japan have entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to work on using artificial intelligence (AI) for cardiovascular disease research.

They will leverage AI together to make clinical trials faster and more efficient, improve patient care, and find new treatments for heart patients.

In addition, the collaboration seeks to improve the understanding, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease globally.

CIT president Joichi Ito said: “This Memorandum of Understanding marks the beginning of a fruitful partnership between CIT and ISMMS.

“We’re confident that combining our expertise in computer science with Icahn Mount Sinai’s remarkable work in medicine will result in pioneering advancements and tangible benefits for patients worldwide.”

As part of this alliance, Mount Sinai and CIT will conduct clinical trials across the globe using AI in fields including interventional cardiology, cardiac electrophysiology, heart failure, cardiac imaging, and preventive cardiology.
