Center for Healthcare Innovation
This site serves as a portal for all educational programs and research activities across the entire university in healthcare and life sciences at the Stevens Institute of Technology.
The university-wide Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) supports faculty and student-initiated multidisciplinary research that addresses gaps and issues related to advancing biomedical technology and healthcare delivery and serves as a focal point for integration of external strategic partnerships.
Additional activities of the CHI involve development of new educational programs, coordination of multi-investigator grant and contract proposals and commercialization of intellectual property.
Major areas of research include tissue engineering of cancer biopsies for drug development and therapy selection, biomaterials that control infection of implanted prosthetic and medical devices, mobile healthcare and telemedicine apps, and data analytics and modeling of healthcare delivery systems.
