Supporting Research

Methodist is a research center, with our scientists working side-by-side with clinicians and patients to evaluate the effectiveness of various therapies, test new therapies and develop innovative, data-driven solutions. The donor-supported Wilson Research Foundation is the primary means of support of this research, lab technology, and education activities. The Foundation is seeking new major gifts and needs to raise a minimum of $1 Million annually for the next three years to build on our discoveries and help Methodist Rehab patients recover more meaningfully and quickly.  Learn more about our research activities.
