The Center for Engineering in Medicine
The CEM provides a unique environment in which scientific rigor, collaboration, training, and technical innovation come together. This winning combination has allowed the CEM to develop a remarkable reputation within the academic and industrial communities, both as an outstanding training environment and as an exceedingly innovative and productive research organization.

A place where scientific rigor and creativity are matched by
a sense of sharing and community, the Center for Engineering
in Medicine is a relatively young and vibrant enterprise
that draws strength from its diversity and collaborative
spirit, and from its affiliations with surrounding biomedical
research institutions including the Massachusetts General
Hospital, the Harvard Medical School, the Shriners Burns
Hospital, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Interactions, both within and outside the CEM, provide
excellent opportunities for training as well as opportunities
for spin-off industrial activities. The CEM's emphasis
on collaboration serves to remove the boundaries separating
the engineering, scientific, and clinical disciplines.
The physical layout and research activities in the CEM
follow the same principles with an open-bay configuration,
interdisciplinary group meetings, and a focus on highly challenging cutting-edge problems.
