Research at Mass General
The Strategic Alliances Initiative is a cornerstone of the Mass General Research Institute’s mission to help scientists engage in more productive and long-lasting collaborations with industry at all stages of their work: from fundamental research to proof of concept, development, and transfer to market and patient care.
The translation of scientific discoveries to clinical practice is rapidly rising on the list of research priorities, as stakeholders adjust to changing realities regarding:
Massachusetts General Hospital is ideally positioned to contribute to and benefit from this burgeoning emphasis on translational research. Its mission—to excel in clinical medicine and scientific research, and to lead in training for both—contains the essential ingredients for successful translational research initiatives that will improve patient care.

The Massachusetts General Hospital Research Institute is launching Bridging Academia with Industry, a novel translational research training program.
The program is open to postdoctoral researchers and early career faculty from Mass General and other academic institutions, as well as industry scientists. It is designed and taught jointly by academic and industry faculty to provide participants with the understanding, methods and tools required to perform translational research and turn discoveries into new cures and diagnostics.
The first pillar is a course in translational research strategy and tactics providing:
The second pillar is a translational research project, which provides one collaborative team with hands-on experience performing clinically relevant, problem-driven research while developing a go-to-market plan including intellectual property strategy, market analysis, regulatory strategy and economic assessment. The project will be chosen from proposals submitted by course participants, and the team will receive support and guidance from program faculty.
