The Wyss Institute's faculty members are established leaders in the field of Biologically Inspired Engineering. They hold academic appointments at Harvard University and Boston University, as well as research and clinical appointments at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Children's Hospital Boston, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
A novel component of the Institute is its Advanced Technology Team, which brings technical experts with extensive industrial experience into the Institute community to help focus and advance the Enabling Technology Platform efforts.
The Institute also has established a Wyss Technology Development Fellowship Program, which provides exceptional postdoctoral fellows with the opportunity to be co-mentored in bioinspired technology development and translation. The Institute hired its first Wyss Fellows in the spring of 2009, and we are seeking to fill additional positions over the next year.
In addition, the Wyss provides support for a limited number of visiting scholars and clinical scholars to work at the Institute and become active members of the community.
The entire Institute enterprise is managed and administered by our director and faculty leadership, with support from our expert Leadership Team, who bring extensive management, financial, and corporate start-up experience into the Wyss community.
