FEBRUARY 25 marked the official launch of the Mass General Global Health Research Collaborative (GHRC)—a formal network of research groups and global health research faculty across MGH departments, institutes and centers. Convened by the Mass General Center for Global Health (CGH), the Collaborative meets quarterly and focuses on the exchange of meaningful research findings and the creation of pioneering bench, clinical and population health research partnerships, the results of which will be leveraged to inform global health care and influence policy in underserved populations.

The Collaborative also provides a platform for students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty to develop global health partnerships and mentorship, and research career development opportunities.

Founding members include CGH partners the Mongan Institute, the Ragon Institute and the Mass General Division of Pediatric Global Health, as well as 28 faculty from across the Mass General Cancer Center and Mass General Departments of Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Dermatology, OB/GYN, Surgery, Neurology and Psychiatry.
