(AUSTIN) Today, in a meeting at the State Capitol, the Oversight Committee of the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), approved a large slate of awards totaling over $89 million for cancer research, prevention and product development. The list of grants is included below.

“The awards approved today by the Oversight Committee illustrate the depth and breadth of CPRIT's impact in the Texas fight against cancer,” said CPRIT CEO Wayne Roberts. “From recruitment grants bringing the brightest cancer researchers to Texas, to supporting lifesaving prevention programs across the state and providing critical investments in developing new cancer-fighting drugs, CPRIT touched all the bases for a home run against cancer.”
