The 365,000-sf Simches Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital (Partners Healthcare) is a new "magnet" research building for regenerative medicine, human genetics, and computational, integrative, and systems biology. In the fall of 2004, research at the MGH took an exhilarating new turn with the opening of the Richard B. Simches Research Buidling. Situated in Charles River Plaza, directly adjacent to the main hospital campus, the center epitomizes a modern, state-of-the-art and interdisciplinary medical research facility.
The emphasis throughout the center is unmistakable: building interdisciplinary partnerships to expand the boundaries of modern medical research.
The Simches Research Center is home to five cutting-edge thematic centers, each blending the best of clinical knowledge and scientific exploration:
- Center for Systems Biology
- Center for Human Genetic Research
- Center for Regenerative Medicine
- Center for Computational and Integrative Biology
- Wellman Center for Photomedicine
Besides being home to the five Thematics Centers the Simches Research Center also houses teams of scientists and clinicians focusing on research and care in brain tumors, cancer, cardiology, psychiatry and other disciplines. For complete list of occupants is available here.
