Catalyst provides a window into the scientific explorations underway at LIMR as well as the biomedical inventions in progress—everything from new tools to detect disease or predict its behavior to new angles on treatment.

We also highlight ongoing clinical studies, which are central to determining how tests or treatments work in patients, and introduce members of our dedicated faculty, taking a look at the problems they seek to solve.
