Collaborations within the Medical Research Community in Boston

Fraunhofer CMI is very much integrated into the medical research community in the Boston Area. For a number of years, we have been collaborating with a number of world-renowned, local hospitals and universities. This collaboration has resulted in a number of government and industry research grants.

Brigham and Women's Hospital

As one of several teaching hospitals associated with Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's is renowned in virtually all fields of adult medicine. Its vision is to transform the future of healthcare through science, education, and compassionate care. The hospital is committed to serving the needs of the local and global community, providing the highest quality health care, expanding the boundaries of medicine through research, and educating the next generation of health care professionals.

We have collaborated with Brigham and Women's Hospital for a number of years. Currently, we are working with  Dr. Jean Lee , an expert in Staphylococcus species, under a joint NIH R01 grant.

Boston Medical Center

Providing care regardless of a patient's social or economic circumstances, Boston Medical Center (BMC) is the largest "safety net" hospital in New England. A private, non-profit facility located in Boston's South End, BMC serves as the primary teaching affiliate for Boston University's School of Medicine. It is also a founding member of Boston HealthNet, a network of 15 regional, community health centers.

Fraunhofer CMI has numerous collaborations with Boston Medical Center. Currently, we are working with Dr. Anand Devaiah on novel surgical tools.

Children's Hospital Boston

As one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States, Children's Hospital Boston extends comprehensive health care services to children from birth through adulthood. The hospital is also a leader in pediatric research, discovering treatments and therapies for many debilitating diseases. Children's serves as the primary teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School and works closely with many other universities and hospitals in the Boston area.

Fraunhofer CMI has recently started collaborating with Children's Hospital Boston. We are working with Dr. Nira Pollock, an infectious disease, physician scientist, to develop new diagnostics for tuberculosis and influenza.
