Research at Harvard Medical School
Innovation fuels discovery at Harvard Medical School, where more than 11,000 faculty members and over 1,600 medical and graduate students strive to alleviate suffering caused by disease
This work takes place on the School’s Boston campus and across the metropolitan area at 15 affiliated hospitals and research institutes. Faculty members and students 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 underserved populations. The ultimate goal is to translate discoveries into medicines and programs that will eradicate disease and improve health worldwide.
