CHGR Clinical Genetic Research Facility (MGH)

Director: Gusella, James, Ph.D.

Location: 185 Cambridge Street, Simches Building, Suite 2000, Boston, MA 02114

Core Summary:

The Clinical Genetic Research Facility (CGRF) offers clinical investigators a convenient, modern research-dedicated facility for outpatient studies involving genetics. Our outpatient exam rooms and phlebotomy rooms are fully equipped and offer investigators an experienced medical assistant to facilitate the visit.

Since the CGRF’s primary mission is to support and promote genetic clinical research, the facility’s investigators performing genetic studies supported by non-commercial sponsors are given priority. The CGRF also considers genetic studies sponsored by industry, as well as studies without a genetic component, on a space-available basis.
