Free-form fundamental research helps to improve our understanding of the basic processes of life, including the activities of cells and proteins, and the genetic components of disease.
Translational research provides the link between basic science and clinical care, helping to transform scientific discoveries into medical treatments, and feeding clinical insights back to the lab for further investigation.
Clinical researchers partner with patient volunteers to test the safety and efficacy of new medical diagnostics, devices and treatments.
The goal of outcomes research at Massachusetts General Hospital is to examine the effectiveness and value of both disease prevention and interventions in real world scenarios.
By contributing a blood sample to our biobank, our patients can help us make new strides in understanding the underpinnings of disease at the genetic level.
