Cancer

Cancer is second leading cause of death in the US and is a research priority area. The annual NCI budget of over $5 billion dollars (the highest in the NIH), and the $3 billion dollars funding earmarked for cancer research in Texas under the state's CPRIT initiative,  and other funding sources, present opportunities on which UNTHSC can leverage and build its research portfolio. UNTHSC through its three schools is one of, if not the only institution in the region, that has the unique capacity to conduct cancer research in the areas of basic laboratory, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, and community research.
