Research & Innovation Support

Philanthropy catalyzes novel research, giving GW investigators crucial opportunities to engage in discovery and innovation, test new concepts, and collect preliminary data.

Your investment allows our physician-scientists to pursue the most promising research areas and continue building knowledge around disease progression. Your support helps GW researchers make significant strides toward improving patient care by discovering ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease – not only bolstering innovation, but also saving lives.

By supporting a Research Acceleration Fund or Discovery Fund, visionary philanthropic partners help us move our efforts into the next phase of development and bring solutions to the pressing medical challenges of our world.
