Founding Consortium Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Massachusetts Institute of Technology was founded in 1861 as a “teaching laboratory,” to couple teaching and research and focus on real-world problems. This mission has provided a setting for one of the most respected technology transfer programs in the country, as well as many research units that focus on interdisciplinary research.

MIT is one of the four institutions that came together in 1998 to found CIMIT. In addition to the CIMIT-funded projects MIT researchers have pursued, CIMIT and MIT have been working together to provide meaningful training in medical device development for graduate students in the MIT 2.75 class.

In addition to general CIMIT grants, MIT graduate students in engineering are eligible for the CIMIT/MIT Fellowship.
