Located at 400 Technology Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Ragon Institute occupies four and a half floors of office and lab space, with three floors connected by an open stairway.
Our workspace is uniquely designed to support immunology and infectious disease research, including a Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) lab, an onsite clinical exam room for sample collection, and a large flow cytometry core.
The Ragon’s current facility includes state of the art flow cytometry and microscopy cores, a BSL-3 laboratory, a vivarium, a private, dedicated phlebotomy room, and a 160-seat auditorium with audio-visual and conferencing capabilities, where we host symposiums, classes, meetings, and community.
Our design is driven by our collaborative ethos; three of our lab floors are connected by a central staircase that encourages people to come together throughout the day, keeping our labs, and our people, connected.
In recognition and support of the growth of the Ragon Institute, Terry and Susan Ragon have generously committed funding for a new building at 600/625 Main Street in Cambridge. This new space will represent the Ragon’s world-class research, and Cambridge’s exceptional biomedical ecosystem, with a beautiful, functional design that includes a daycare and reserves a third of the site for open, public use spaces.
Our new home will allow us to double in size, bringing more scientists, researchers, biologists, clinicians, postdoctoral fellows, and operational staff into our collaborative fold, supported by a state of the art lab space, a large vivarium, and a BSL-3 lab that will allow us to safely expand our infectious disease research program.
The Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard brings together scientists and engineers from diverse fields to better understand the immune system and support human health.
Our people are our greatest asset. We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment that is welcoming for all.
