200 years at the research frontier

The awarding of the 2011 Warren Triennial Prize — established in 1871 to honor MGH co-founder John Collins Warren, MD – seems an appropriate time to celebrate the MGH research program, which stands today as the largest hospital-based research program in the United States.

This special issue of MGH Hotline highlights a few of the historic advances made by MGH physicians and scientists – from characterizing the nature of a common disorder to revealing how genetic information is translated into proteins to scientific analysis of the outcomes of care – and pairs them with the current work being done by MGH investigators. A more comprehensive look at the MGH’s leadership in medical research will appear in a special edition of Proto magazine this December. Distribution of the print version is limited, but the entire issue will be available online.
