The Future of Research at Baystate is Bright Last year, research funding of $14+ million included $9.5 million in federal funds. But as an academic teaching hospital—the regional campus of the University of Massachusetts Medical School—Baystate’s size and clinical excellence put it in an excellent position to grow its research program. Internal grants provide financial support or protected time, mentoring, statistical consulting services, and grant-writing assistance to investigators to spur an increased number of competitive proposals submitted for external research funding.
