CIMIT provides innovators with resources to explore, develop and implement novel technological solutions for today’s most urgent healthcare problems. CIMIT's Programs offer an insider’s view of the future of medicine – where and how technology has the potential to transform healthcare in the not-too-distant future. Learn more about our Programs and Strategic Initiatives.
CIMIT offers support for engineering students to work in highly innovative yet classically under-funded areas of healthcare research, and gives awards to outstanding clinicians, early in their careers, who are engaged in the development of breakthrough medical devices and technologies.

"When you’re doing something truly novel and advocating a different course of action, something that goes totally contrary to what everyone has said for 25 years, it’s hard to find support. But CIMIT was there and provided backing.”
-Martha Murray, MD, Children’s Hospital Boston
"The tendency for junior surgery faculty is to become heavily loaded with clinical care responsibilities, and put their research interests on the back burner. The Young Clinician funding enabled me to set aside time to focus on device development, and I look forward to several future projects building on the success of this work."
-James Ellsmere, MD, BIDMC
2006 Young Clinician Award Recipient for Novel device to effectively manage care of patients after gastric surgery to control obesity
