$7.7 million awarded from CPRIT
Gail Tomlinson, M.D., Ph.D., interim director of the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute and professor of pediatrics, received $2.7 million to help health care providers map out their patients’ cancer risks, and to share information with the community about the importance of understanding family history. The grant also will support screening services for people at high risk who might not otherwise have access.
Andrew Hinck, Ph.D., professor of biochemistry, was awarded $1 million to fund instrumentation that will help researchers develop new cancer-fighting drugs and take screening capabilities to a new level.
