Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Dec 14, 2017

 The state of Texas is striving to increase cancer research capabilities and opportunities with the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). One method that CPRIT uses to increase cancer research opportunities throughout the state is through the institutes core facility support awards, which provide more funding and opportunities for researchers from different Texas institutions. Recently, researchers from Texas A&M University received a $5.7 million grant from CPRIT to expand cancer research at the university through this additional core facility funding.

$11.5M Granted to Houston Scientists for Lymphoma Treatment Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 04, 2017

Lymphoma is one of the most common types of cancer, with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma making up about 4% of all cancer cases in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Although treatment methods like chemotherapy and radiation therapy are able to treat the cancer, researchers still actively study this cancer to gain a better understanding of it to develop new targeted treatment methods. 

Researchers from the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital have been studying new therapies for the cancer using T-cells, research that they will continue with the assistance of a new $11.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.

Texas Medical Center Researchers Find New Way of Treating Spina Bifida

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Oct 24, 2016

Researchers at Texas Medical Center’s McGovern School of Medicine piloted a revolutionary way of treating spina bifida patients in utero. The new method utilizes a patch made from human umbilical cord and the regenerative tissue does not cause scarring, which often leads to complications. Recent clinical trials preformed at TMC’s Fetal Center at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital showed improved outcomes for babies inflicted with the birth defect.
