Consortia for Improving Medicine with Innovation and Technology
By integrating talented and inquiring minds from academia, healthcare, engineering labs, scientific research and industry, together with superb medical and graduate students, the Consortia for Improving Medicine with Innovation and Technology gives new meaning to the term “learning laboratory.”
CIMIT was formed in 1998 as a “center without walls,” linking four leading academic research centers in the greater Boston area.
It now includes 13 of Boston’s strongest academic medical centers, universities, and a growing network of national and international affiliates. Starting from a foundation in medical devices, diagnostics, and procedures, the scope has grown to address the full spectrum of medical innovation including e-health, drugs, and biologics.
Since its founding, CIMIT has had a highly productive relationship with the US Department of Defense, sharing the mission to address the healthcare needs of warfighters as well as civilians resulting in dual-benefit solutions. Much of CIMIT's early, and part of its ongoing, funding has been from the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.
