Biomedical Research

Georgetown University is consistently classified by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education as an institution with “very high research activity.” Georgetown University Medical Center is home to the 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.
