Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard seeks to transform medicine by empowering creative and energetic scientists of all disciplines from across the MIT, Harvard, and the Harvard-affiliated hospital communities to work together to address even the most difficult challenges in biomedical research.
Faculty members at the Broad Institute are faculty members at MIT, Harvard, or one of the Harvard-affiliated hospitals and have teaching and other responsibilities at their home institution. Currently there are 15 core faculty members whose primary laboratory is located at the Broad, and over 300 associate members whose primary lab is located at one of the affiliated universities or hospitals.
The Broad Institute is also home to many postdoctoral and graduate students who perform some or all of their research at the Broad Institute, although graduate students earn their degrees from their respective home institutions. In addition, the Broad Institute offers numerous research opportunities for undergraduate and high school students. To learn more about these programs, visit the Broad website.
The Broad Institute primary research labs are at 415 Main Street (across the street from MIT's Biology Department and adjacent to the Whitehead Institute), at 320 Charles Street, and at 75 Ames Street.
