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.
