Overview

Baylor College of Medicine is located in Houston, Texas, within the world’s largest medical complex, the Texas Medical Center . The Undiagnosed Diseases Network clinical site at Baylor is led by principal investigator Dr. Brendan Lee, who also founded and directs the Skeletal Dysplasia Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital and serves as chair for the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor.

Undiagnosed Diseases Network research subjects are seen at Baylor and its hospital affiliates, including Texas Children’s Hospital and CHI St. Luke’s Health–Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center . By bringing together specialists in pediatrics, internal medicine, medical genetics, neurology, immunology, and more, as well as consulting with experts across the Undiagnosed Diseases Network, researchers and doctors at Baylor hope to diagnose and define new diseases, find their cause, and identify potential therapies for as many people as possible.
