Boston University’s excellence in biomedical engineering has made it invaluable for furthering CIMIT’s efforts in medical device development and engineering in medical environments. BU joined CIMIT’s consortium in 2006, and in 2007, BU and CIMIT started a graduate student engineering fellowship program, which offers multi-year support for graduate engineering students to work in highly innovative yet classically under-funded areas of healthcare research.
