In addition to delivering outstanding patient care, research (basic, clinical, and translational) is a key mission of the Roberta and Stephen R. Weiner Department of Surgery.
The Department of Surgery has a robust research enterprise with nearly $20 million in funding and 40 NIH grants, as well as some 400 publications generated by our faculty and students. The impressive work within our department continues to attract the brightest young women and men, who perform cutting-edge science that crosses boundaries.
Research programs in surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center encompass:
- Cancer biology
- Vascular biology
- Cardiothoracic research
- Wound healing
- Epithelial and endothelial biology
- Clinical outcomes
All divisions in the Department of Surgery have at least one active research program. In 2011, research in the department was conducted by 204 individuals, including: 44 faculty, 59 postdoctoral research fellows, 27 research assistants, 14 surgical residents, two nurse educators/practitioners, and many undergraduate,
graduate, and medical students.
