Texas A&M Advances Global Disease Prevention with Launch of Field-to-Clinic Initiative
Date:10/1/2013

Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

As the next step in a series of advancements to transform scientific discovery across Texas A&M University and, in turn, the state and nation, the Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) Institute of Biosciences and Technology (IBT) in Houston is establishing a new Center for Epigenetics & Disease Prevention (CEDP) with support from the Chancellor’s Research Initiative (CRI).

The CEDP, with collaborators from across The Texas A&M University System, is poised to transform health care by shifting the standard model of disease prevention through an innovative “field-to-clinic” initiative. This new era of preventive medicine will integrate nutrition, chemistry and medicine to radically change the approach to cancer, metabolic disorders like diabetes and chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease. In short, researchers are focused on developing preventive treatments and pharmaceutical agents using beneficial compounds naturally found in food.

“This initiative brings together the A&M System’s best and brightest researchers, with expertise in agriculture, nutrition and medicine to form a diverse and highly collaborative team intent on developing revolutionary disease prevention solutions that will impact generations to come,” said John Sharp, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System.

A multidisciplinary and cross-institutional team is spearheading the novel field-to-clinic approach aimed at identifying phytochemicals, or naturally-occurring plant compounds, in whole foods that inhibit disease or have other preventive qualities beneficial to humans and animals. Once identified, such compounds will undergo quality-controlled, large-scale
production in preparation for human clinical trials. To accomplish this, the CRI has invested $9
million in the field-to-clinic enterprise, including funds to recruit new faculty members and to c
