In this guest column, UTMB President Dr. David L. Callender, along with fellow leaders of Texas institutions, wrote about the important work of the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas. “Thanks to Texans’ commitment to fighting this enemy, CPRIT has the resources to wage this war as few others can. Future years will bring more funding, more research, more prevention, more cures. The $3 billion that Texans are investing through CPRIT is a powerful weapon against cancer and a meaningful commitment to the health of people here and around the world.”
