Consortium Institution: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is a Harvard teaching hospital that treats more than 700,000 patients every year. BIDMC is committed to medical research. The oldest clinical research laboratory in the country, the Harvard-Thorndike Laboratory, is located at BIDMC.

As part of its mission to support innovative clinical research, BIDMC became a member of the CIMIT consortium in 2003. BIDMC’s strengths in cardiology and neuroscience have been especially critical to CIMIT projects in predicting and preventing cardiac infarction and efforts to develop devices that control and prevent epileptic seizures.
