Research, discovery, and translation to practice are at the core of the mission for the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. By accelerating research excellence, enhancing innovation, and advancing translation, our goal is to make discoveries and improve clinical care.
The scientific workforce, composed of highly educated researchers and scientists-in training, clinician investigators, as well as skilled technical support staff, project managers, and core team members, together contribute to research discovery. Training the next generation of biomedical scientists is a key goal.
Funding and support, obtained from federal and non-federal grants and contracts, private industry investment, and philanthropy, is essential to sustain our research programs. SMHS provides funding opportunities and strategies to gain support.
