Research

Innovation fuels discovery at Harvard Medical School, where more than 11,000 faculty members work to alleviate suffering caused by disease.

This work takes place on the School’s Boston campus and across the metropolitan area at 17 affiliated hospitals and research institutes. Faculty members collaborate across the community, pooling resources and expertise to tackle tough problems ranging from understanding the root causes of cancer to developing therapies and interventions; from understanding the rising costs of health care to developing delivery systems to under served populations. The ultimate goal is to translate discoveries into medicines that will eradicate disease and improve health worldwide.
