Part of Harvard Catalyst at Harvard Medical School, Open.Med supports the clinical and translational research community by building innovative tools that connect researchers to the people, information, and resources they need in order to speed the pace of translational research.

The Open.Med Story

We believe that the key elements for success in clinical and translational research already exist at Harvard, including the intellectual force, technologies, and clinical expertise necessary to reduce the burden of human illness. What was missing was a systematic way for investigators from disparate disciplines and institutions to find each other and form teams, share tools and technologies, obtain seed funding to embark upon new areas of investigation, and receive advanced training and education in the principles and practice of clinical and translational science.  Fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration that encourages the translation of ideas into practice is our focus.
