Life-changing biomedical breakthroughs begin in the laboratory—with discovery science serving as the foundation of research at MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School.
Discovery Science and Translational Medicine Research
Before a cancer treatment can save a patient’s life, researchers must study the disease at the molecular level. Therapies only become reality after scientists develop the mechanisms by which it works.
Our faculty and student researchers at MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School pursue these discoveries every day, using the most advanced technology and latest methods to overcome the most challenging diseases of our time.
They apply a broad range of biomedical disciplines, from cell biology to neuroscience and biostatistics, to find the answers that have eluded medical science. They do this with the combined institutional backing of UTHealth and MD Anderson Cancer Center, along with the collaborative support of the other UTHealth schools.
The urgency of biomedical science research becomes clear in the lives of patients who struggle with diseases not yet vanquished by modern medicine. They are the reason for our mission, and we will never stop striving to find the answers they need.
The solutions to the greatest biomedical challenges of our time lie before us, ready for dedicated scientists to unlock them. Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. can provide the faculty and student researchers of MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School with the resources to find the answers that will make longer, healthier lives a reality.
