About Baylor Research Institute

The Baylor Research Institute, located in Dallas, TX, is a dedicated research center for finding prevention therapies and treatments for diseases and illnesses. Our research focuses on the patient. This means our efforts are more than microscopic studies - they bring the research to the patient's bedside. We work to understand the base of a disease, identify potential treatments or preventive therapies, and enroll patients in research trials. 

Established in 1984, Baylor Research Institute matches its research efforts with the strengths and expertise of the medical staffs at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and other Baylor medical centers throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Our mission is to develop innovative therapies to improve the care and well-being of our community. 

The Baylor Research Institute collaborates with the medical industry to develop its technology and intellectual property. The Institute is supported by philanthropy through the Baylor Health Care System Foundation and by grants from the National Institutes of Health and other national organizations. Baylor Health Care System also provides financial support. 

Baylor Research Institute staffs approximately 250 employees, including scientists, laboratory assistants and research coordinators, which are located throughout the Baylor Health Care System. Michael Ramsay, M.D., is president of the Baylor Research Institute. 

The results of the Institute's research - basic, applied and clinical - are reported in major scientific publications and at national and international medical meetings. Currently, more than 650 research projects are under way. Baylor receives millions of dollars in research funding annually, which helps further our current studies and chart new territory.
