Research at Harborview

“Harborview recognizes that the delivery of the highest quality of healthcare is enhanced by a strong commitment to teaching, community service and research.”

Harborview-based faculty obtain over $240 million in research and training funding per year, performing translational and basic research as well as clinical studies and treatment trials, epidemiology and health services research. Lab-based research includes cell biology, neurosciences, vascular biology, inflammation, infectious diseases, lung biology and microbial pathogenesis. Research laboratories are located in the Research & Training Building and the Ninth & Jefferson Building. These buildings, operated though the joint efforts of the University of Washington School of Medicine and Harborview Medical Center, provide laboratory facilities and research offices for HMC-based faculty. Other clinical and outcomes research programs occupy space across the Harborview Medical Center campus.
