BRI Centers and Programs
The BRI includes nine disease-focused research centers and five resource-and technology-based programs that develop and support collaborative research initiatives. This infrastructure allows our diverse community of clinicians and scientists to communicate more effectively, providing numerous opportunities for them to collaborate on research aimed at curing, treating and preventing human diseases and conditions.
Research Funding Initiatives
The BRI seeded its eight original research centers with nearly $900,000 in 2005 and continues to support its centers and programs administratively and financially. In 2007, the BRI teamed up with BWH leadership, departments and the Development Office to jumpstart the Fund to Sustain Research Excellence. This program provides grants in the amount of $50,000, renewable for a second year, to our scientific investigators while they await grant approval from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
For more information on BRI funding opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The BRI sponsors events, including leadership retreats and scientific poster sessions, to enhance communication with and among its investigators. The BRI also supports several online communication projects, sometimes in collaboration with other BWH departments. Please note that some links in this section are only available to BWH and PHS employees.
AT BWH, WE BELIEVE
SCIENCE IS PART OF THE CURE.
Established in 2005, the mission of the BRI is to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery by fostering groundbreaking, interdepartmental and interdisciplinary research within the hospital’s research community, as well as to provide a clear voice both within the hospital and outside its walls, for all researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
