Description: The Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT), is a consortium of non-profit Massachusetts-based institutions led by Massachusetts General Hospital and includes Brigham and Women`s Hospital, MA Institute of Technology and Draper Laboratory. The primary aim of the Center is to develop technologies that will advance the capability of modern medicine to diagnose and treat patients using minimally invasive and less costly approaches. CIMIT will coordinate and implement research programs in cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, trauma and critical care, that are supported by basic science and engineering development in biomaterials, endoscopic tools, energy delivery, intelligent decision systems, medical imaging, micro-sensors, outcomes, robotics and simulation. A unique military/civilian partnership fostered by CIMIT will allow DOD technologies to be evaluated by CIMIT investigators and facilitate the transfer to the military of successful minimally invasive approaches developed at CIMIT.
