Research at Mass General
The Executive Committee on Research provides strategic guidance and support for the scientific research mission of Massachusetts General Hospital.
The Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) at Massachusetts General Hospital is the central planning and policy-making body for research. ECOR brings together a wide range of internal stakeholders to provide guidance to the hospital's leadership regarding research priorities.
ECOR responsibilities include:
ECOR meets as a full committee twice monthly and is guided by an executive committee that includes a chair, a vice chair, a past chair, the hospital president, the senior vice president for research, the chiefs of surgery and medicine, the director of the clinical research program and the director of ECOR.
The voting members of ECOR include elected representatives from all three levels of Harvard Medical School faculty, as well as appointments from the ECOR chair and the chief's council, and senior hospital leadership.
Non-voting members of ECOR include representatives from development, public affairs, Partners Healthcare and other research stakeholders.
In addition to regular meetings, ECOR organizes the monthly Research Council meetings and hosts the annual Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) meeting.
The SAC meeting celebrates science at Mass General and invites an outside group of science experts to review our scientific achievements and make recommendations for future initiatives.
