Study Science & Health in the Heart of Boston

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, scientific and medical advancements such as modern cardiac surgery, organ transplantation, immunosuppression and even the first milk-based infant formula all took place in Boston’s hospitals. The city has become a global center for research, drug development and treatment for disorders of the brain and body, with neighboring institutions including Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at the forefront.
