The physicians at NEBH take part in research independently as well as in association with researchers outside of NEBH for clinical, translational, and patient-centered research. We also develop new educational initiatives geared toward training and mentoring a new generation of scientists and health care professionals.
We will advance knowledge in musculoskeletal diseases and related disorders.
We will facilitate research groups at NEBH, and collaborate with other investigators in clinical*, translational** and patient-centered outcomes research.
We will evaluate patient outcomes and quality of life.
We will develop educational initiatives focused on training and mentoring a new generation of scientists.
We will disseminate research findings nationally and internationally.
We will support and advance the NEBH mission and ROSE Philosophy (Respect, Ownership, Superior Service, Excellence).
New England Baptist Hospital is committed to the treatment of all participants involved in research in a manner which protects their safety, dignity, confidentiality, and right to be fully informed.
There is a strong foundation of research-driven innovation on which to build, including recent advances in multi-modal pain therapy and early mobilization after joint surgery. These best practices, among many others, were shaped by Baptist investigations and have produced shorter hospital stays while maintaining superlative patient outcomes.

The Division of Research conducts a number of ongoing studies at all times. For more information about current studies, including the Principal Investigator and Study Coordinator, or to learn more about what it means to participate in a study, please contact us at 617-754-6732.
Please note that all studies conducted at the New England Baptist Hospital are reviewed and approved by the New England Baptist Hospital Institutional Review Board (IRB). An IRB is a committee that has been formally designated to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving humans. They often conduct some form of risk-benefit analysis in an attempt to determine whether or not research should be done. The number one priority of IRBs is to protect human subjects from physical or psychological harm.
If you have any questions, please contact Betsy Draper, Research Protections & Operations, at 617-754-6684.
NEBH feels it is very important to be educated before participating in a research study. Education can help you make an informed choice. Learn more about participating in research studies.
