Welcome to Research Matters, the research blog of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at The George Washington University. This blog supports research by alerting you to funding opportunities, sharing research news, and providing a database of research faculty. Our purpose is to promote research excellence and collaboration.

The site is made up of three areas: Research Blog, Funding Announcements, and Researcher Profiles.

In the Research Blog, you will find posts on topics related to research at GW.

In Funding Announcements, you can find funding related to your research area. New opportunities are added every week!

In Researcher Profiles, you will find a searchable database of researchers at GW. You can use this to find new collaborators across the university.

We would love to hear your feedback. We encourage you to suggest a post by contacting, or you can write comments on current posts. Posts will be added every week, so please check back frequently!

GW is committed to digital accessibility. If you experience a barrier that affects your ability to access content on this page, let us know via the Accessibility Feedback Form.
