Our institutions


Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science, Harvard Medical School

The Initiative contributes to the Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science, a partnership between Harvard, MIT, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Center is focused on innovative approaches for the development and evaluation of medical products and aims to promote regulatory science through research and education programs.

Boston Children’s Hospital

The Initiative is based in the Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) at Boston Children's Hospital, a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. We leverage the wealth of CHIP's expertise in biomedical informatics and its access to a wide spectrum of data, including national-scale insurance claims datasets, patient registries, healthcare encounter data, social media content, and research networks.


The Initiative is supported by the Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
