After being introduced to The Boston Home by colleagues at MIT, Diego and his colleagues Esteba Pino and Dorothy Curtis from MIT visited The Boston Home last Spring with the idea of using it as a test site for their MISTI Projec to design assistive devices. MISTI Global Seed Funds enable MIT faculty and researchers to launch early-stage international projects and collaboration with colleagues abroad.
