Get Invovled

We have many ongoing projects and events and are always looking for active members or participants. We regularly recruit members from across the Boston community, including HSPH, Sloan, Brandeis, BU, and Northeastern.

We are also open to developing ongoing relationships with international academic partners for our curriculum, hackathons, or project development.


In addition to enrolling in our edX course, we welcome academic partners to participate synchronously with our live Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology course that runs from February to May. This afford the opportunity for your students to work with our students on practical project teams for a unique multi-national learning experience.

mHealth Hackathons and Bootcamps

We bring a wealth of experience and expertise in the domain of global health informatics and hackathons, promoting a dynamic learning experience to nurture innovation and design thinking. We can help you plan and organize an event that fits your needs and participants.


We are committed to supporting high impact mobile health projects in the early design or development stage. Clinical, NGO, or governmental partners should be readily in place or supporting to ensure implementation.

Projects can be offered during our HST course, provided adequate mentorship and commitment.


Sana offers MIT undergraduate students UROP opportunities on actual live projects, through the Laboratory for Computational Physiology. Below are a sampling of recent or active projects that students have worked on, but we are also supportive of projects customized to your skills and research interests.

Sana Mobile Platform Core platform development of the core Sana Mobile Platform, a highly customizable end-to-end telemedicine platform for strengthening health care workers. There are various components, including an Android mobile and tablet front-end, interfacing with a Python/Django dispatch server, with many projects interfacing with an OpenMRS backend.
Sana Protocol Builder With an overarching goal of making the Sana Mobile Platform easy to use for clinicians or non-engineer users, this initiative is driven toward engineering a user-friendly/WYSIWYG interface to design and deploy protocols through the Sana Mobile Platform.
Second Generation Physiologyic Sencors for Low-Income Countries Monitoring a multitude of critical patients in the developing world is difficult due to a variety of financial and personnel reasons. This project is focusing on developing a cost-effective solution that allows clinicians to effectively monitor multiple patients simultaneously and respond rapidly to the most critical patients requiring immediate intervention, such as those in cardiac arrest.
