The Hartwell Foundation


2006 Top Ten Centers of Biomedical Research

  • Duke University
  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 
  • The Johns Hopkins University
  • The University of Michigan
  • The University of Wisconsin Madison
  • University of California San Francisco
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

In selecting each research center of excellence, The Hartwell Foundation takes into account the shared values the institution has with the Foundation relating to children’s health, the presence of an associated medical school and biomedical engineering program, and the quality and scope of ongoing biomedical research. The Foundation also considers the institutional commitment to provide technical support to the investigator, especially as related to translational approaches that could promote rapid clinical application of research results, including technology transfer. In 2006, nine selected institutions fully participated in the process to nominate recipients for a Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Award.
