This is one of the top research areas in the world.

The following are research stats for Harvard:
  • NSF 2009 Ranking: 33rd (total R&D expenditures in life sciences) = $325,469,000
  • NIH 2011 Ranking: 24th (Direct plus indirect costs but excluding R & D contracts and ARRA awards) = $200,391,748
  • Harvard Medical School has an endowment of more than $26 billion. [3]
  • The Broad Institute of Harvard received a $600 million endowment to convert the institute into a permanent biomedical research organization aimed at transforming medicine. The commitment is the largest to support biomedical research activity at universities anywhere in the world.
  • Harvard Medical School researchers will head the Advancement of Health Information Technology with a $15 Federal Grant.
  • The Harvard Stem Cell Institute’s Therapeutic Screening Center is a state-of-the-art facility, that due to demand from researchers has undergone expansion over the last year. The HSCI has also been attributed for the world’s first iPS Core Facility. The center was recently transported to the recently renovated Bauer building within the Harvard University campus. The larger space will help facilitate the growing demands for stem cell research.
  • Harvard Medical School has 50 clinical research departments including cell biology, genetics, microbiology, neurobiology, systems biology and pathology.
  • Harvard University is home to the largest comprehensive cancer center in the world – the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute.
  • Harvard Medical School has a total faculty of 11,017 which includes 8,224 resident physicians and Post Doc fellows.
