The Division of Clinical Research (DCR) of the Mass General Research Institute works to promote science at the clinical—research interface. The division sponsors a total of 10 centers and 15 units, each of which has a specific mission to assist investigators conducting clinical research through education and consultation.

Our mission is to increase the quality, quantity, and efficiency of translating basic science advances into improved care for our patients. Our researchers and clinicians partner with academia, industry, governments, foundations, and philanthropists to prevent and treat disease, and improve the lives of our patients.

We celebrate the scientific achievements of MGH researchers every year at Clinical Research Day.
