About the Center for Health and Biosciences

The Center for Health and Biosciences (CHB) conducts research that enables policymakers to improve the health care delivery system and advance medical research. The center combines the Baker Institute’s expertise in health policy and biomedical policy to address domestic and global health concerns.

Drawing on the knowledge of scholars at Rice University and experts at the Texas Medical Center, the CHB offers a unique setting for medical and policy professionals to discuss issues of growing concern encompassing three major research themes: U.S. health care, global health and the future of medicine. Within these three areas, research questions capitalize on specific areas of expertise among our fellows and scholars, including health economics, cancer care policy, maternal and child health, control of neglected tropical diseases and biomedical research policy.
