Affiliate Faculty enrich Broad’s research community and build bridges between Broad and our partner institutions (MIT, Harvard, or a Harvard-affiliated hospital). Affiliate Faculty help drive Broad’s scientific mission by acting as thought partners, collaborators and leaders.

Associate Members
In some instances, Affiliate Faculty are so deeply engaged in Broad science that they are granted Principal Investigator (PI) status as Associate Members and initiate or lead scientific collaborations and projects with funding, lab members, and/or space on the Broad campus.
