…people have creative ideas about how to improve medicine, and MESH is enabling them to create the tools that they imagine and to improve the care they can provide to their patients.

Who We Are

MESH is an in-house prototyping and entrepreneurship center at Mass General Brigham. The first incubator of its kind integrated into a hospital system, and with a physical location on the ground, MESH has actively created and supported over 60 clinicians and researchers since 2016 through projects, patents, company-formation, innovation education, and much more.

Our programs have over 120 alumni, including clinicians, researchers, industry, and students in Boston and beyond. We have graduated 40 clinicians from our novel MESH Core Innovation Bootcamp, the first innovation training rotation in an ACGME-accredited residency. We have incubated, from scratch, 10 companies with clinician founders and teams from MIT, Harvard, and industry since 2016. We have produced ~10 patent disclosures, and published 12 papers since we launched our Innovation in Operations (MESH IO) Research Group in August 2020.
