A biomedical and genomic research center that is independently governed that encompasses three types of organizational units: core member laboratories, programs and platforms which work together and with other collaborators to tackle critical problems in human biology and disease. Data and cutting edge software tools are generated and developed, and these tools analyze those data (increasingly large genome-related datasets) which is shared openly with the scientific community. The Broad faculty includes core members and associate members. All associate members hold primary appointments in a home department at one of the partner institutions, but are deeply involved in the scientific work and culture of the Broad Institute. It is formally affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and its affiliated hospitals.
