To date, more than 75,000 patients have consented to have their blood samples and health histories added to the Partners Biobank at MGH, so we can learn more about the genetic basis of disease

In 2017, the Executive Committee on Research at Mass General provided $13.2 M in institutional support for 122 investigators, helping to fill in gaps in federal research funding and support promising young investigators, women who are balancing families and careers, and individuals who are underrepresented in medicine

Since the inception of the MGH Research Scholars program in 2011, a total of 50 investigators have received crucial unrestricted funding ($100,000 per year for five years) to support the game-changing ideas that are too early or unproven for traditional forms of funding.
