Partner Institutions and Community
Meeting the challenges of biomedicine requires bringing together world-class expertise across many disciplines, exceptional and creative scientists, and unprecedented technological resources. Remarkably, all of these can be found within a 3-mile radius around the Broad Institute, and all of them are critical elements in this young organization’s success to date.
The Boston area’s pre-eminent biomedical research organizations — the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and its affiliated major teaching hospitals (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Massachusetts General Hospital) all bring their particular strengths to the Broad, weaving them together in a collaborative effort to completely transform medicine and biology.
This deeply collaborative community includes more than 150 faculty and more than 1,500 scientists from across MIT, Harvard and the Harvard-affiliated hospitals working together to solve the most critical problems in biomedicine.
The Broad’s commitment to transforming human health also extends beyond the Boston area, and is reflected in the Institute’s rapidly growing number of international collaborations, including over 100 projects across more than 40 countries.
