Discovering the fundamentals of human health and disease and translating these discoveries into advances that improve lives, requires collaborative, coordinated efforts by individuals and teams with diverse expertise. Baylor College of Medicine has extensive resources to support our scientists.

Office of Research

The Office of Research develops and maintains programs to streamline and support the discovery process while assuring adherence to the highest ethical standards in research. The Office of Research provides support for sponsored projects, important documents and forms, research oversight and more.

Innovation Development Center

IDC serves as a hub for partnership in the development of promising biomedical innovation assets. These assets typically originate within Baylor College of Medicine's world-class innovation ecosystem but may also be sourced externally. IDC utilizes a novel co-development model whereby multiple stakeholders can share the cost, risk and benefits of moving these assets through the challenging early stages of product development. IDC is an "asset accelerator", which leverages a diverse array of resources, expertise and infrastructure to accelerate the asset development process.

Advanced Technology Core Laboratories

Core facilities provide state-of-the-art instrumentation and technologies to support research of all faculty. ATC Labs are each staffed by a scientific director and dedicated technical personnel who provide the highest quality laboratory work plus consultation on experimental design, data analysis and training.
