Founded in 2003 and launched in 2004, 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.
Investigators at the Broad Institute come from all of its partner institutions, many of whom are faculty members at MIT or Harvard. Currently there are ten core faculty members with their primary labs located at the Broad, and over 160 associate members, with their primary labs located at one of the 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 7 Cambridge Center, across the street from MIT's Biology Department and adjacent to the Whitehead Institute, at 320 Charles Street, and at 301 Binney Street.
