Medical Proffesionals

The Research Administration program of Hartford HealthCare is organized to provide optimal services and oversight for the conduct of medical research at our institutions.

Our goal is to support and facilitate the growth of research and offer our patients access to new and novel treatment options. To that end the department has developed a centralized infrastructure to meet the needs of research investigators across the HHC system.

While the work of each division is distinct, the program functions collaboratively to provide oversight and resources in support of excellence in medical research at Hartford HealthCare. It is our privilege to support our clinicians as they aim to contribute to advances in medicine and improved care for our patients.
