Improving the health of the community through research
Cox Medical Centers' Center for Research and Innovation supports the research needs of our outstanding clinicians. We do this by developing sustainable programs and oversight for clinical trials, investigator-initiated research and academic research. Contact us if you're interested in participating in a study or helping conduct one. Students, employees, volunteers and patients are welcome to participate.
Cox Institutional Review Board
The Cox Institutional Review Board provides oversight of clinical trials. The board approves and periodically reviews research protocols to protect the rights of human participants.
The Nursing Research Council
The Nursing Research Council functions as an aid to nurses who wish to perform their own research, as an advocate for research in the system and as a council of professional judgment when appropriate. The council's passion is nursing research, adding to the field's knowledge base and incorporating research into practice as much as possible. Our purpose is to better patient outcomes and experiences as a whole by our impact on nursing practice, education and research through our own conduction of research, providing assistance to other nurses interested in research and disseminating our findings.
