Research Programs

In November 2007, Texas voters approved a constitutional amendment to establish the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) to fund grants for cancer research and prevention. In the first competition for multi-investigator proposals, CPRIT funded the $4.8 million (three years) Comparative Effectiveness Research on Cancer in Texas (CERCIT).
The Sealy Fellows Program recognizes faculty from all departments and schools within UTMB based on their contributions in the field of aging. The primary criteria for program qualification are that these activities be ongoing, extensive and scholarly. The more than 70 SCoA Fellows and Senior Fellows represent a wide range of disciplines and departments.
The Mexican Health and Aging Study (MHAS) started as a prospective panel study of health and aging in Mexico. MHAS was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health/ National Institute on Aging (R01AG018016, BJ Soldo, PI).
