Dr. Olivier Lichtarge is constantly pushing his research group hard to think of innovative ways to analyze the massive amount of data available to scientists to help solve complex problems in biomedical research.
Baylor’s Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery recently hosted its second annual Residents’ Research Day. This forum focuses on the collaborative research being done by Baylor’s surgery residents, and the importance of their work.
Baylor College of Medicine’s genetics program continues to break barriers in diagnosing rare diseases through the use of advanced genome testing. Often the diagnosis is just the starting point for researchers, uncovering a rare disease where little is known and funding to study it is scarce or nonexistent.
