Foundation: 1970

Mission: The Harvard-MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology (HST) is a unique collaboration that brings together the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard Medical School, Harvard University, Harvard-affiliated teaching hospitals, and local research centers to integrate science, medicine, and engineering to solve problems in human health. HST's mission is to educate outstanding minds and cultivate leaders who will explore fundamental principles underlying disease and develop preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic innovations. This academic mission cannot be accomplished by either Harvard or MIT acting alone, but rather requires substantive contributions from both.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
