Meet the MGH Research Scholars Class of 2020
The MGH Research Scholars program began in 2011 to provide forward-thinking researchers with the unrestricted funding they need to take their work into new and uncharted territories. With your support, we have been able to bestow 65 MGH Research Scholar awards — including five MGH Research Scholars in 2020. Since 2011, this group of stellar scientists has collectively secured an additional $496 million in grant funding, formed 19 start-up companies, published 2,456 scientific papers and given over 1,800 national and international talks.
It is with great pride that we introduce the MGH Research Scholars Class of 2020. We look forward to keeping you posted on their exceptional work in future editions of the MGH Research Scholars Notebook — stay tuned!
It will come as no surprise for you to hear that our MGH Research Scholars are playing leadership roles in Mass General’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, moving quickly to create solutions to the most pressing problems of the pandemic.
Thanks to flexible funding from the MGH Research Scholars program, more than a dozen researchers pivoted in recent months to pursue scientific inquiries to help control the pandemic. Read more about their transformative research and innovative collaborations.
