Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The mission of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. We are also driven to bring knowledge to bear on the world’s great challenges.

The Institute is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university, organized into five Schools (architecture and planning; engineering; humanities, arts, and social sciences; management; and science). It has some 1,000 faculty members, more than 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and more than 130,000 living alumni.

Last week, Harvard University President Lawrence S. Bacow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology President L. Rafael Reif, and Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne wrote an op-ed to outline the importance of “drastic action” to protect the health of our nation, including the efforts of America’s leading research universities.
Tumors called high-grade gliomas wire themselves into the healthy brain, receiving and interpreting electrical signals from normal neurons, a study from Stanford, Harvard, MIT, JHU, and the University of Michigan study has found.
University of Oregon chemists analyzing a new porous material synthesized by a research group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered that electrical charges flow through it in an unexpected but potentially advantageous way.
Tumors called high-grade gliomas wire themselves into the healthy brain, receiving and interpreting electrical signals from normal neurons, a Stanford study has found.
A team of scientists at Stony Brook University, Caltech, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology has found a way for the first time to detect multiple tones of a black hole ringing like a bell — something that most astrophysicists thought would not be possible for a decade or more.
By exposing mice to a unique combination of light and sound, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can improve cognitive and memory impairments similar to those seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
Primitive ponds may have provided a suitable environment for brewing up Earth’s first life forms, more so than oceans, a new MIT study finds.
In an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing, Stanford scientists have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars.
MIT’s new mini cheetah robot is springy and light on its feet, with a range of motion that rivals a champion gymnast.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Rafael Reif wrote in the Financial Times to encourage the nation’s colleges and universities to prepare students for societal challenges posed by artificial intelligence.
