Description

Join the Boston Biomedical Innovation Center to engage with the world of biomedical innovation. We will facilitate your exploration of human biology and medicine – covering the spectrum of health, dysfunction, and disease. The experience will lead you through four interconnected modules built around specific disorders. In each module, we will help you use analogies to better understand cutting edge research. You will engage in collective problem-solving activities using actual patient examples, and hear about patient experiences.
