Research Makes a Difference in Patient Care

"Clinical, translational and health services research at Baystate Health is essential to the delivery of high-quality health care and training."—Peter Friedmann MD, Chief Research Officer

Research at Baystate

As an academic teaching hospital and the regional campus of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Baystate Medical Center faculty and research staff conduct basic, biomedical and clinical research in many medical and surgical specialties.

Annual funding of over $14 million in sponsored research and public service grants includes $9.5 million in federal funds. (Recent externally funded research awards)

Support for Researchers

Growing Research is a Priority

"Baystate’s size, community orientation and clinical excellence put it in an excellent position to perform clinical, translational and health services research,"says Chief Research Officer, Peter Friedmann, MD, MPH.

Accordingly, we have established two internal grant programs that provide investigators with needed resources—financial support or protected time—to help them increase the number of competitive research proposals they submit for external research funding. The grant programs also provide mentoring, statistical consulting services, and grant-writing assistance.

Center for Quality of Care Research

Our nationally-recognized multidisciplinary research program, Center for Quality of Care Research, develops innovative methods to measure the quality and outcomes of care, evaluates the effectiveness of common treatments, and improves care delivery through the design, implementation, and assessment of new approaches in medicine.

Drs. Lindenauer and Lee briefly describe their research experiences at Baystate in this 2 minute video.

Publications and Scholarly Activity

Scholarly Commons is a repository of research and scholarly output contributed by individuals, departments and centers at Baystate, and maintained by the Health Sciences Library.

Pioneer Valley Life Sciences Institute

PVLSI integrates the academic and scientific resources of the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the clinical expertise of the Baystate Medical Center by bringing together teams of life scientists, physicians, engineers, and physical scientists to focus on clinical disorders, such as breast cancer, apoptosis, and diabetes.
