The Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine

The Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine produces leading-edge research in the field of regenerative medicine.

The Bhupat & Jyoti Mehta Family Foundation partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur (IITK) to establish the Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine in 2019. The center focuses on regenerative medicine, molecular medicine and engineering, and digital medicine.

Medical practice has undergone a revolution, and the IITK Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine is leading the charge. The center leverages IITK’s existing strengths in engineering, biological sciences, and biomedical research while diversifying into frontier areas to enable more impactful fundamental and applied research.

The Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine exemplifies MFF’s mission to bring talent from all over the world to India and improve educational opportunities. The center strives to make a significant impact on healthcare via research and technology while producing next generation leaders well trained in interdisciplinary areas.

“The idea behind the Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine is finding new ways to solve challenging medical problems,” IITK Professor Abhay Karandikar says.

The Bhupat & Jyoti Mehta Family Foundation and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur celebrated groundbreaking on the Mehta Family Center for Engineering in Medicine in 2019.

“We are extremely thankful to the Mehta Family Foundation for all the help in achieving IIT Kanpur’s vision in amalgamating medicine and engineering.”

MFF’s vision is to provide new opportunities for students in India in frontier fields and enable economic prosperity across the country.

“We are happy to be associated with IIT Kanpur, which has been a pioneer in science-based curriculum in engineering and has many firsts to its credit,” MFF founder and CEO Rahul Mehta says. “This center will give rise to a new field that will be at the forefront of the way healthcare will be practice in the 21st century.”

Multiple leading U.S. universities helped launch IITK as a classical technology/engineering institute in 1959. Recognizing the importance of STEM education since its inception, IITK pioneered the science-based engineering curriculum in India in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
