The Future of Research at Baystate is Bright

Last year, research funding of $14+ million included $9.5 million in federal funds.

  • And, 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 investigators with support to increase the number of competitive proposals submitted for external research funding—mentoring, statistical consulting services, grant-writing assistance, and financial support or protected time.
