Rice and UT-Houston join DOD push for regenerative medicine
Date:4/17/2008

stan," said Capt. Curt Hayes, chief resident of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Lackland Air Force Base's Willford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio. "This new grant presents the opportunity for improving battlefield management and outcome for hard-tissue injuries that are sustained by our military members."

Each of AFIRM's civilian consortiums was awarded $42.5 million over a period of five years. In addition, the two consortia are bringing local public and private matching funds amounting to more than $180 million that will be added to their research budgets -- for a total of more than $250 million available for research.

Rice and UTHouston are two of the 46 member institutions in the Texas Medical Center (TMC), one of the world's largest medical complexes. TMC institutions conduct more than $1 billion worth of research and see more than 5 million patients each year.

"Rice and UT-Houston's AFIRM research program calls for doctors and bioengineers to work side-by-side to rapidly translate new discoveries from the laboratory to the operating room," said Rice Provost Eugene Levy. "This is an outstanding example of the kind of joint, tightly interwoven research that will be greatly facilitated and that Rice plans to conduct with UT-Houston and its other TMC partners in the new Collaborative Research Center slated to open in mid-2009."

UTHouston President Dr. James Willerson said, "This is a most significant endeavor and is a tribute to the strength we can achieve through collaboration in the Texas Medical Center."
