Cutting-edge faculty research
A new research model was needed that could adapt continuously to keep the School on the bleeding edge. We’ve adopted a scaled research model, a lab model borrowed from engineering and the life and natural sciences. The lab is focused on solving problems in the world. Multiple faculty members immerse themselves in the issue, in addition to doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows, data scientists, visiting researchers, and other cross-school collaborators.
30+ Faculty members across Harvard
