About Us

The Center for Population Health Research is a research group within the Baylor College of Medicine Department of Family and Community Medicine which is rapidly developing research and service programs.

The CPHR is an evolving research group with a confluence of interests, stakeholders, and members with mutually reinforcing skill sets and specialties. Together we are able to leverage a variety of resources, from access to large data sets, a diversity of inter-professional knowledge bases, access to community service providers and populations, and mentorship and networking opportunities. We aim to attract faculty and fellows with aligning interests to strengthen our teams and advance their own work.
