Research is Critical

The Massachusetts General Hospital Research Institute is committed to biomedical research and supporting creative scientists who are investigating fresh ideas that have the potential to forever change our understanding of disease and treatment.

The hospital is a unique place where basic research scientists explore the mechanics of disease and routinely collaborate with physicians who treat patients. In this environment, ideas flow freely, resulting in patients receiving the most innovative therapies backed by rigorous scientific research.

Basic research can link seemingly unrelated diseases, create partnerships across disciplines and propel patient care forward. It has the power to advance science in great leaps. Without it, there would be no medical progress at all.

Mass General is the home of game-changing research. It has the largest hospital-based biomedical research program in the United States.

Our researchers have earned prestigious research awards, including the Nobel Prize and the Lasker Award. These leading scientists regularly collaborate with and encourage early career researchers.

Your unrestricted support of basic research makes innovation possible.

Flexible Funding for Bold Science

Giving to Mass General is an investment in the remarkable work of passionate researchers pursuing ideas too bold to always attract funding from traditional sources such as the federal government. Philanthropic support provides them with the flexibility and freedom they need to continue their important work.

Your gift will make a difference. A gift to the unrestricted fund for basic research will support groundbreaking research where it is needed most.

Join us in supporting scientists who are reaching for answers to the big questions.
