TMC institutions get $20 million renewal grant for translational medicine center

. Ultimately the desire is to expedite the process of bringing new science to the patient's bedside," said Roberta Ness, M.D., M.P.H., co-investigator of the CCTS, dean and M. David Low Chair in Public Health at the UT School of Public Health and vice president of innovation at UTHealth.

"At MD Anderson, the grant has provided critical laboratory support for our Clinical and Translational Research Center," said Daniel Karp, M.D., who is a co-principal investigator of CCTS and a professor in MD Anderson Cancer Center's Department of Investigational Cancer Therapeutics. "The CTSA has also helped support innovations in bioinformatics, robust tumor banking and important community initiatives - especially in the critical areas of nutrition, obesity and liver disease."

"In the previous five years, we saw much progress that has provided direct benefit for our patients, strengthened our research infrastructure and built important bridges between our thought leaders," Karp said. "This renewal will allow us to go forward and accelerate the contributions of our team science."

Robert C. Bast, Jr., M.D., co- investigator for the CTSA program at UTHealth and vice president for Translational Research at MD Anderson Cancer Center, said, "Renewal of this grant allows the CTSA to continue to encou
