The extensive research conducted at Baylor College of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals is a strong feature of the residency program. Our committed faculty members provide a strong support for residents actively pursuing research projects.

The extensive research conducted in these institutions provides house officers with access to current diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, often before they are generally or commercially available. Faculty members offer strong support for those residents who choose to participate in research projects.


Baylor College of Medicine has three buildings for research. Each facility offers a specific area of focus to expand learning opportunities. The Feigin Center, houses state-of-the-art laboratories including a GMP cell and vector processing facility; an animal imaging facility, and SIM center for educational training. The Neurological Research Institute, offers collaboration with different clinical departments to research developmental disorders and other inherited pediatric neurological diseases. The Children’s Nutrition Research Center, the largest and most comprehensive center of its kind, is dedicated to the study of childhood nutrition.
