Dynamic research environment
Baylor investigators are conducting more clinical trials than ever before. Currently, more than 1,000 new drugs, biologics and vaccines are under development. As a result, more than 15 federal agencies monitor research compliance. The government can issue monetary fines up to $250,000 and criminal charges against individuals for research compliance violations. The Clinical Trials Office helps investigators conduct research studies in compliance with government standards so the researchers can focus on their core competency: research.
