Boston University (BU) and Boston Medical Center (BMC) today announced their joint membership in the Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology (CIMIT), the Cambridge, Mass.-based consortium that brings together clinicians, scientists and engineers to solve complex medical problems using novel technologies.

BU and BMC join founding members Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, MIT, and Draper Laboratory, along with Partners HealthCare, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Boston Children's Hospital. Founded in 1998, CIMIT is a Center at Harvard Medical School.
