Introduction to the Mass General Research Institute

About:
Did you know the Mass General Research Institute is the largest hospital-based research program in the country? There are over 9500 scientists working to solve science and medicine’s toughest challenges, right in our backyard! In this video, you’ll learn about how the research in our labs turns into groundbreaking discoveries and first-class patient care.
  • The Mass General Research Institute was formed to support, promote and guide research at Massachusetts General Hospital—home of the largest hospital-based research enterprise in the United States. For this year’s Cambridge Science Festival, our researchers contributed videos, activity books, science experiments and much more. See all of our activities here.

About the
Festival

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
