Hormones Expert Gustafsson to Lead Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling at UH and Methodist

HOUSTON, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gov. Rick Perry today announced the awarding of a $5.5 million grant to the University of Houston through the Texas Emerging Technology Fund (ETF).

As a result of the ETF grant, UH has recruited a top hormones researcher and his team to carry out laboratory research and to create next-generation pharmaceuticals and medical technologies at a world-class center to be established by UH and The Methodist Hospital Research Institute (TMHRI).

"The biomedical industry is one of the largest in our state, and has the potential to greatly improve many Texans' quality of life with continued research and expansion," Gov. Perry said. "This world-class research team will lead the charge in developing treatments for diseases that plague our citizens and enhance the University of Houston's presence as a biomedical research institution."

Jan-Ake Gustafsson, a renowned figure in the study of hormones and a member of both the National Academy of Sciences and the Nobel Assembly, accepted an appointment this summer to expand his revolutionary research efforts at the University of Houston. He arrived on campus in late January.

"We are delighted to have Dr. Gustafsson join our faculty as a key leader in our biomedical initiative," said Renu Khator, president of UH and chancellor of the UH System. "He was courted by Ivy League institutions and determined the University of Houston offered the best opportunity to advance his research. He will play an important role in our quest for flagship university status."

Gustafsson's hiring represents a key element in fulfilling Khator's vision for the university, which includes a UH Health Initiative that will expand the university's presence and its part
