    ​Along with patient care and teaching excellence, research is a core value of Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). Each day, our research community embodies what it means to be part of an academic medical center – a place where science, learning and clinical care meet to benefit our patients and their families.

    Our physician-scientists, nurses, and clinical and research fellows ask questions and find answers to some of medicine's most challenging problems, including heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Our patients are also able to be part of the solution by participating in clinical research.

    BWH's substantial commitment to research is measured by our number of important discoveries, the size and scope of our research portfolio, and our volume of scientific publications. Our virtual Brigham Research Institute, formed in 2005, enhances our role as a worldwide leader in scientific discovery – bringing together all investigators around an increasing number of core services and a wide array of administrative resources. 

    In addition to the Brigham Research Institute, the Brigham Innovation Hub is a new center created to harness the power of our community's inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs. By providing project management, business analytics, resources, tools and connections to both internal and external collaborators, the iHub encourages and supports the innovation process from dieation to testing, commercialization, implementation and adoption - unleashing our innovators' potential to disrupt traditional medicine and relevant healthcare.

    Within the portal, you will be able to connect with various administrative  departments across Brigham and Women's Hospital, including Research Administration, Research Compliance, Environmental Affairs, Research Space Management as well as the Brigham Research Institute.
