Advancing Human and Animal Health
The Center for Organ and Cell Biotechnology, supported by the
Texas Emerging Technology Fund, is a new collaboration between the
Texas Heart Institute (THI) and the Texas A&M College of
Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Led by Dr.
Doris Taylor, director of Regenerative Medicine Research at THI,
the center includes scientists, engineers, physicians,
veterinarians, and business managers from both organizations, and
other colleges located at Texas A&M University. Dr. Taylor
draws from expertise at both institutions to position the Center
for Cell and Organ Biotechnology as a world leader in adult stem
cell research, organ transplantation, and personalized medicine.
The health of animals and people is inextricably linked and this
unique center will advance both human and animal health.
