Participate in Research
At Mass General Brigham, we know the importance of research and innovation, and our patients' role in it.
Our founding hospitals have a long tradition of medical breakthroughs, from the first use of ether for surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital to the first successful organ transplant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Almost every treatment, test, drug, or medical device is a result of successful research, dependent on patients like you.

The Biobank is a large research program designed to help researchers learn how people’s health is affected by their genes, lifestyle, and environment. By participating, you can help us better understand, treat, and even prevent the diseases that might affect your health and the health of future generations. We are looking for thousands of participants of all ages and backgrounds.
All of Us
The mission of the All of Us Research Program is to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. All of Us, a program of the National Institutes of Health, is a research community of one million people who share their unique health data. All of Us enables researchers to gain better insights into the biological, environmental, and behavioral factors that influence health and disease.
All of Us aims to engage a community of participants that reflects the diversity of America, including many people who haven’t taken part in medical research before. We welcome participants both healthy and sick, of all backgrounds and walks of life, from all regions across the country.
