ARUP K. CHAKRABORTY
Director, Institute for Medical Engineering & Science
Welcome to the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science at MIT!
Our community aspires to identify, confront, and overcome important challenges in medicine and health care by bringing together approaches at the convergence of engineering, science, medicine, and entrepreneurship.
Our strength is in integration, which unifies diverse departments at MIT as well as the Harvard Medical School, and builds strategic partnerships with Boston area hospitals and biotech companies. This provides a unique educational opportunity to work at the convergence of disciplines to impact the discovery, design, delivery and deployment of therapies, diagnostics, and better patient care. This intersection of disciplines provides a unique opportunity to make important advances in medicine and health care.
As the founding director of the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science at MIT, I invite you to join us to inspire and invent solutions that will transform medicine and health care. Please use this website to learn more about IMES and to consider joining us as a student, faculty member, collaborator or supporter. I look forward to working with you in the coming years.
