Tools and Technology Program at HMS

Technology may be the single most important driver of discovery in biomedical science

The Tools and Technology Committee (TnT) was created to ensure that HMS achieves and maintains world leadership in critical areas of biomedical research. TnT program funds help support and expand our shared facilities and technologies on the quad and help drive new programs in technology innovations and development.

TnT Funding

The TnT Program funds upgrade and equipment purchases for existing cores, the purchase of shared equipment made available within departments, and the start-up costs for new core facilities. The TnT Faculty Advisory Committee works closely with departments and department leadership to identify future funding needs. Proposals for applying for TnT funds are considered on a rolling basis by the TnT Faculty Advisory Committee and can be submitted at any time. Proposals should be formatted and submitted following these guidelines:
