Institute for Cancer Research Holds First Symposium
FORT WORTH, Texasâ??The University of North Texas Health Science Center held its first Institute for Cancer Research (ICR) Symposium on campus Dec. 5.
Institute members presented highlights from their research in the fields of experimental therapeutics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology and molecular biophysics.
All research presented was funded through seed grants from Bank One. These initial funds are intended to help recipients undertake new cancer research projects. The research findings can now be used to apply for federal and state peer-reviewed funding.
Robert M. Lansford, senior vice president of Bank One, was named the “UNTHSC-ICR Champion of the Year” at the symposium for his companyâ??s contributions. Mr. Lansford serves as chairman of the UNT Health Science Center Advisory Council.
The Institute for Cancer Research was developed in January 1999 to study how cancer spreads in the human body. The Institute contributes to new approaches for cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
