Georgetown University Medical Center is home to Georgetown University’s most robust research enterprise, consistently securing approximately $100 million annually in externally sponsored funding supporting a broad continuum or research from basic to applied translational science. The medical center research community includes specialists in a wide array of disciplines and is recognized internationally for its work, most particularly in the areas of cancer, the neurosciences and global health. It is home to a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and a Clinical and Translational Science Award, one of a few select institutions in the country to hold both of these federal grants.
