News & Events

  • Mass. General-led study provides new insights into the role of aging in heart failure

    A team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators has found that activity of an important signaling pathway increases with aging and with heart failure and that inhibiting that pathway can improve cardiac function in mouse models.

  • Research RoundUp

    Research at the MGH is interwoven throughout more than 30 departments, centers and units and is conducted with the support and guidance of the MGH Research Institute. The Research Roundup is a monthly series highlighting studies, news and events.

  • Heart walk for fitness and friend

    Almost 200 MGH staffers, patients and family members joined over 10,000 walkers on the Charles River Esplanade on Sept. 12 to participate in the 2015 AHA Boston Heart Walk.
