2020 Research Awards

The Research Awards epitomize the spirit of collaboration and innovation between the MGH Foundation, its generous donors and the MUHC Research Institute. Together, we are committed to funding extraordinary research for the benefit of our community.

This year, we were proud to announce over 80 awards with a value of over $1.6 million dollars!

If you too would like to participate in funding the outstanding research being done at the MGH, please consider making a donation.


Due to COVID-19, we unfortunately had to cancel our annual dinner. Instead, we asked each award recipient to share a short video explaining their research and thanking the wonderful donors who support their work, year after year.
