Advancing Human and Animal Health

The Center for Organ and Cell Biotechnology (CCOB), originally supported by the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, is a 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 CCOB 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 advances both human and animal health.
