Clinical Discovery Program
The purpose of the Clinical Discovery Program is to rapidly translate and test novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches from bench to bedside. This Program focuses primarily on technologies previously developed at CSB but also applies other new technologies as they are related to human biology. The primary fields of interest are currently in cancer dx, clinical imaging and systems analyses. Investigators in this program are practicing clinician scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital and collaborators from other Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals. The program is primarily funded through grants from NIH.
