The Semcer Center for Healthcare Innovation is a university-wide research center to augment Stevens' impact on healthcare. In this fast-changing era where life expectancy is ever-increasing, and the individual and societal burden of medical care is tremendously escalated, an innovative and translational approach to healthcare is needed.
We seek routes of collaboration among our faculty, clinicians and industry partners by encouraging communication and networking. Our efforts also aim to foster students’ success in education, as well as expand opportunities for their career paths in healthcare-related industry, academia and government.
