The Science Spotlight newsletter features publications from Brigham researchers in high-impact journals and research metrics from the prior month. The gold colored buttons denote COVID-19 related publications. Brigham authors are bolded.
In December there were:
30 papers led by Brigham researchers published in top-tier journals
39 tweets about new research and 97.8K tweet impressions
51 awards with $62,741,778 in new grants
A Reminder from the Office of Strategic Communication: If you have research news to share, please contact us. Ideally, we work with researchers as soon as a paper is accepted at a journal to develop an appropriate communication strategy in advance of publication. For media relations and social media support, email mediarelations@bwh.harvard.edu or contact Haley Bridger directly at hbridger@bwh.harvard.edu

Submit Your Publication to Science Spotlight
In Science Spotlight, we highlight publications from Brigham researchers in high-impact journals that can be found in Harvard Medical School's Paper Chase research database. We recognize there are many other Brigham publications in Journals that may not be included on this list, so we would like to extend the opportunity to our research community. If you and/or your Brigham colleagues are the first and/or last author on a recent publication, we want to include you in our Science Spotlight newsletter! Please fill out this brief REDCap form with the details of your publication.
**Please visit the new MGB web page for COVID funding opportunities that provides a central database for researchers to view open and competitive funding announcements***
