Advancing Human and Animal Health
The Center for Organ and Cell Biotechnology, supported by the
Texas Emerging Technology Fund, is collaboration launched in 2013
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.
