- Our clinicians have experience with a wide range of diseases and conditions and collaborate with other care providers and researchers across specialty areas and disciplines.
- Our basic scientists in the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology uncover strategies to improve women’s reproductive health across their lifespan.
- Our clinical investigators in the Deborah Kelly Center for Outcomes Research ensure we deliver the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.
- Through our comprehensive obstetrics, gynecology, in vitro fertilization and gynecologic cancer programs, we develop personalized care plans in partnership with patients and their families.
Collectively, these efforts make us uniquely positioned to gather the most visionary minds in medicine to bring to life new solutions in women’s health.
Imagine a future where ...
- We prevent — rather than react to — ovarian cancer by offering new avenues of risk assessment and disease detection.
- A holistic model of maternity care for appropriate patients can be developed and advanced, and pregnancy is treated as a healthy and important life event rather than as a medical condition.
- Teams can build on new knowledge from research and clinical trials to develop preventive tools and effective treatments for individuals at risk for preterm labor and other pregnancy complications.
By capitalizing on the strengths of our general hospital and assembling a multidisciplinary team of experts to accelerate discovery and clinical progress, Mass General will make this future a reality.
