The Mary Jane and Frank J. Semcer, Sr. '65 Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is the home for faculty, industry partners, healthcare practitioners, entrepreneurs and students to pursue cutting-edge research and translation of innovative technology into clinical practice.

We strive towards regional, national, and international recognition for healthcare innovation in our five core specialties:

  • Multifunctional Multiscale Biomaterials and Biofabrication

  • Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Technologies

  • Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Engineering

  • Biomedical Sensing and Imaging

  • Drug Discovery, Development, and Delivery (4D)

Using an interdisciplinary approach to collaboration across the departments of all four Stevens schools and beyond, CHI helps distinguish Stevens in healthcare-related research.

As a launchpad of groundbreaking biomedical research, CHI serves as the central hub of collaborative research across all four Stevens schools, while catalyzing interdisciplinary connections with external industrial, institutional and clinical partners alike.

With a focus on tackling the most pressing healthcare issues of importance as a global society today, CHI places Stevens at the forefront of healthcare-related research and seeks to develop the next generation of medical innovators.
