Translating Discovery into Innovation
Collaboration is the organizing principle driving research at WPI. Here, interdisciplinary teams span traditional academic departments and coalesce around ideas, approaching complex problems from multiple perspectives to speed the pace of discovery. The common goal is to advance the science and engineer new therapies, devices, and technologies that improve human health and benefit the global environment.
To that end, WPI has invested significantly in the Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center at Gateway Park, a premier facility promoting collaboration and interdisciplinary research, and opportunities for faculty to partner with industry and generate substantial intellectual property.
As an IGERT fellow at WPI, you’ll have the opportunity to conduct discovery-based scientific research directly related to your PhD studies. You’ll also develop an innovative mindset, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the chance to make a positive impact on society.
