History & Leadership

Founded more than ten years ago, the Broad Institute's history actually reaches much further back into successful large-scale scientific collaborations in genomics and chemical biology that grew out of major initiatives at Harvard and MIT, respectively.

The unique cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary culture of the Broad Institute requires a leadership team committed to empowering everyone here with the ability to contribute their diverse talents to the singular purpose of transforming medicine.

In addition to our strong internal leadership, we benefit deeply from the wise stewardship and commitment of a world-class Board of Directors and Board of Scientific Counselors.
