Research Affairs

At Houston Methodist, in the area of Research Affairs, we can advise you about our conflict of interest policy, grants and contracts and research protection issues.

Conflicts of Interest Policy
Houston Methodist is committed to integrity and the protection of patient welfare. Our Research Conflicts of Interest (COI) program is crafted to make it easier to ensure that the design, conduct, reporting and publication of research will not be biased by actual or perceived conflicts of interest. Houston Methodist's goal is to promote the identification and, if required, resolution or management of such conflicts in the context of research. Learn more about our COI policy here.

Research Protections
The Office of Research Protections oversees the approval process for research that involves the use of human subjects, animals or restricted materials. Learn more about the rules and regulations here.

Grants and Contracts
The Office of Grants and Contracts is responsible for all aspects of research finance at Houston Methodist. Learn more about research finance here.

Research Technology
The Research Technology Department is dedicated to supporting researchers through innovative solutions that automate many of the administrative processes. There are two components of this team: Administrative Application Development and Lab Technology Operations. Learn more about this support resource here.
