Faculty members at The Centers are actively involved in research focused on improving operations in a community clinic as well as improving the safety and health of our communities. Our faculty serve as co-investigators on many multi-site research projects in which we serve as a clinical site. Some examples include:
Phase III clinical trials for a maternal RSV vaccine led by Dr. Flor Munoz (Baylor College of Medicine Infectious Diseases)
