Access that Accelerates Outcomes

What revolutionary new therapies might emerge if researchers had access to resources, services and expertise across the entire Texas Medical Center. The TMC Clinical Research institute was created to find out.

The Clinical Research Institute (CRI) has the ultimate vision of advancing the TMC to become the world’s leaderin transformational clinical research to benefit human health. The CRI aims to increase, enhance and expedite the research that is being performed by our member institutions.


CRI Business Council

TMC is creating a Business Council of institutional leaders that collectively represents the TMC and guides the CRI’s        offerings to both TMC researchers and industry partners.

Data Platform

TMC CRI is partnering with Deep 6 AI to provide member institutions with a unique tool that utilizes artificial intelligence to find more, better-matching patients for clinical trials in minutes, not months.

R&D Network and TMC IRB

The TMC R&D Network is the legal framework that allows TMC to work with and on behalf of TMC Member Institutions. The TMC IRB is developed to facilitate multi-institutional studies and to ensure institutional reliance on a single panel review.


The Monthly Education Training Series (METS), created by the TMC Clinical Research Institute, leverages our collective efforts to provide industry leading clinical research training and education opportunities to our campus. METS teaches the fundamentals of clinical research and provides professionals with the background, context and continuing-education credits needed to conduct the most advanced studies in clinical research.
