UH receives $990K grant to enhance cancer research facilities
Date:11/8/2011

Daniel Frigo and research assistant professor Maria Bondesson, both with CNRCS, and assistant professor Fatima Merchant from the College of Technology. The equipment also will be available to UH researchers from other disciplines, such as computer science, engineering technology and pharmacy, resulting in collaborations expected to advance the field of preclinical tumor model analysis and strengthen the emerging UH cancer research initiative.

CPRIT was established in 2007 to invest in groundbreaking cancer research and prevention programs in Texas. The institute focuses on expediting the innovation and commercialization of research, increasing the potential for breakthroughs and enhancing access to evidence-based prevention programs and services. During the last two years, CPRIT has awarded more than $550 million in funding statewide. This is the second CPRIT award for UH in 2011.
