MGH/MIT Center for Ultrasound Research & Translation

The Center for Ultrasound Research & Translation (CURT) is a joint MGH-MIT Center dedicated to clinical translational research and engineering innovation in the field of medical ultrasound.

Overview

The Center for Ultrasound Research & Translation (CURT) is a joint MGH-MIT Center led by Dr. Anthony Samir and Dr. Brian Anthony. Our focus is on clinical translational research and engineering innovation in the field of medical ultrasound. Through tight integration between engineering and iterative translational refinement in the care environment, we aim to rapidly develop high-yield technologies targeted at key clinical problems. Our work is both highly creative and clinically-focused, and we have won numerous awards and grants to support our efforts.

CURT offers lecture series and research opportunities for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and visiting scholars. In the past ten years, we have trained more than thirty post-doctoral fellows in translational clinical research methods, most of whom have gone on to successful academic, clinical, or industry careers. We are fortunate to have an exceptional environment, with first-class clinical research resources, an outstanding intellectual community, high patient care volumes, and superb educational opportunities.
