Research at Mass General
Massachusetts General Hospital operates the largest hospital-based research program in the United States. Here are some facts and figures about our research efforts.
With a budget of $912M in 2017, Mass General is home to the largest hospital-based research enterprise in the United State. Mass General ranks 1st among independent hospitals in the amount of annual funding received from NIH, and it ranks 15th among all institutions.
Research at Mass General takes place in more than 30 departments, centers and institutions across the hospital.
The research community includes more than 8,500 people and covers 1.2M square feet of research space in Boston, Cambridge and Charlestown.
The Translational Research Center is an 18-bed, $11M clinical trial facility that opened in the fall of 2016 with the goal of fostering new collaborations with industry
To date, more than 85,000 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.
The Office of the Scientific Director has established a research blog to promote the work of investigators at Massachusetts Hospital. In 2017, the blog was visited by 11,000 people and viewed almost 15,000 times.
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.
