MIT NEWDIGS moves to Tufts Medical Center

A drug development think tank at MIT that helps solves systemic health care challenges has moved its headquarters from MIT to Tufts Medical Center, where it will integrate its research with real-world clinical work.

Founded in 2009, the MIT New Drug Development Paradigms, or NEWDIGS, program works on challenges in drug development to help speed up the process from getting a drug from the bench to the bedside. Calling itself a “think and do tank,” with one foot in the biomedical industry and another in the health care delivery world, the group works with people across the health care system — treatment developers, payers, clinicians, provider systems, patient advocates, diagnostics companies, academic researchers and investors — to study how to fill gaps in patient care.
