About Us

Research Initiatives


Addressing the complex issues of contemporary biomedical sciences requires the engagement of diverse perspectives. Fulfilling our mission of creating and applying science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally demands that we harness the full and varied intellectual capital of our city, our country and our world.

Training a diverse cadre of professionals to address scientific research through the lenses of their unique perspectives and histories opens new pathways to exploration.


Departments and Centers Addressing Health Disparities and Social Determinants of Health


In addition to the Center of Excellence in Health Equity, Training and Research, there are several other departments, academic centers and schools focused on achieving health equity in Baylor College of Medicine's education, research, healthcare, and community outreach mission areas.
