Supporting Research

Methodist is a research center, with 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 and related technology and education activities. The Foundation is seeking new major gifts and needs to raise $1 Million annually for the next three years to build and expand on our discoveries, which will help Methodist Rehab patients recover more meaningfully and quickly.  Learn more about our research activities.
